Liverpool: 2 City Walking Tours
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. Our Waterfront tour takes you on a rags to riches journey along the docks. We'll show you the port's humble beginnings to its greatest treasures, including The Royal Albert Dock, Liverpool Town Hall, and the elegant Castle Street. You will also glimpse the city's dark dealings in slavery from the 17th to 19th centuries. Of course, it wouldn't be a waterfront tour without introducing you to the buildings that 'grace' the city's skyline from the waterfront itself, aptly named The Three Graces: the secrets of Liverpool's greatest industry success lie between them.
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. While each of them contains an important piece of Liverpudlian culture, their architecture alone is a sight worth beholding. As we reach the top of the street, we will find more local landmarks that further stake Liverpool's claim as an emblematic city before heading to the bustling shopping district. 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.
