Everybody knows Liverpool as the proud home of two of the UK's most globally influential popular culture icons. The first is the 1960s rock 'n' roll band, The Beatles, and the second is the nineteen-time Premier League title holder Liverpool F.C. Both are celebrated throughout the Scouse city with monuments, museums, and even pubs established in their honour.
For the best introduction to the city, start at the place that puts it on the map: the waterfront. This tour will take you on a rags to riches journey along the docks. We'll show you from the port's humble beginnings to its greatest treasures, including The Royal Albert Dock, Liverpool Town Hall, the elegant Castle Street and the The Three Graces: the secrets of Liverpool's greatest industry success lie between them. You will also glimpse the city's dark dealings in slavery from the 17th to 19th centuries.
Afterwards, head into the city centre with us to discover more must-see Liverpool highlights hidden from view at the waterfront. We take a walk down William Brown Street, the heart of Liverpool's Cultural Quarter, where we will stop by Liverpool Library, the Picton Reading Rooms, and the World Museum. From the high street stores to the boutiques and craft stores in The Bluecoat, this tour leaves you with the best local tips for spending in the city.

What is a self-guided tour?
A self-guided tour is a type of tour where visitors explore a destination on their own using an audio guide or a map. Unlike a guided tour, visitors are not led by a tour guide and are free to choose their own pace and explore the sights that interest them the most. Self-guided tours offer more flexibility and freedom to visitors. They are a popular option for those who prefer to explore a destination independently.
Is a Walking Tour suitable for all ages?
The walking tour is suitable for all ages, but keep in mind that it involves a fair amount of walking and standing, so participants should be able to walk for at least 2.5 hours. Additionally, wearing comfortable walking shoes and bringing a water bottle can help ensure that you're comfortable throughout the tour
What is a Multilingual Audio tour?
A multilingual audio tour is a type of tour that provides visitors with audio guides in multiple languages. Visitors can use headphones to listen to the audio guide as they explore a destination, with the audio guide providing information about the sights, history, and culture of the area. The audio guides are typically pre-recorded and offer visitors the option to choose their preferred language.
