Liverpool's Dream - Giant Spectacular 2018 graphic

In 2018, Royal De Luxe and the Giants will make their third and final visit to Liverpool. This time the Giants will be visiting in October and the theme is Liverpool's Dream. Which Giants are returning is still under wraps for now, but we can now reveal the route that they will be taking.

This year's walking route is a whopping 20.6 miles and covers both Liverpool City and the Wirral. The main 'walking' action kicks off on Friday at 10am from St George's Hall Plateau. 

Across the water in New Brighton, another Giant will wake at Fort Perch Rock

    This is an amazing event for all ages coming to Liverpool again. I’m looking forward to seeing them once again. And looking forward to the special event deals that Dockside Diner in Mann Island are putting on while the giants are there. Soooo excited 🤗🤗🤗

    We had planned to come on the 4th, but now looks like nothing on until the 5th!! Why advertise that the event starts on the 4th when actually starts the next day. Very disappointed as we live over 50 miles away and not sure if we can all attend on the Friday
