There is no better way to see all the sights of Liverpool than on a tour. There are so many different types you might have to do a few on your visit to the city. We have everything from tunnel tours to Beatles tours, architecture tours and football stadium tours so whatever you’re into, we’ve got it. 

Jump on a bus, hop on a bicycle or stretch those legs as you take in the views of our beautiful city. 


MERSEY TUNNEL TOURS

Head underground to explore the popular Liverpool Queensway Mersey Tunnel Tour. Go behind the scenes to discover an engineering masterpiece, see the control room, the Emergency escape refuge and working giant ventilation fans whilst walking beneath the city. 

Tours are held on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings. 


FRIENDS OF WILLIAMSON TUNNELS TOUR

Head 60ft under the streets of Liverpool's Edge Hill District to discover the secret labyrinth of tunnels and underground caverns. Built in the early 1800s under the control of retired tobacco merchant, Joseph Williamson, volunteers have since stripped back the years of rubble to uncover all their secrets. Visits to the tunnels are free but donations are welcome and tours must be booked in advance. 


MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR BUS

Grab your ticket to ride on the Magical Mystery Tour Bus for a journey you won't forget. The two hour tour takes place on the colourful Magical Mystery Tour Bus and takes you round all the places in Liverpool associated with the Fab Four. You’ll see their childhood homes, Penny Lane, Strawberry Field and have an expert guide fill you in on their remarkable story. 


BALTIC TRIANGLE TOUR

The Baltic Triangle is one of the most creative corners of the city and now you can go on a tour of the area so you don't miss out on any of the hidden gems. Step into the side streets and unearth everything the triangle has to offer on a walking tour, taster tour or a bar tour. There’s something for everyone. 


ROYAL LIVER BUILDING 360

For the first time in over 100 years, Liverpool’s world famous Royal Liver Building has unlocked its doors to the public for a fully guided tower tour. You’ll be able to head into the iconic building to view a world class audio visual experience inside the clock tower and head up to the 15th floor viewing platform for views over the city like no other.  


SHIVERPOOL

For something a little spooky, head on a tour of Liverpool’s ghostly past with the award winning Shiverpool. Explore the city’s most famous locations as they reveal their hidden histories and mysteries. With theatrical performances from the Spirit Guides, you’ll be pleasantly frightened, entertained and educated on this tour.  


LIVERPOOL CYCLE TOURS

Grab a helmet and take to the streets of Liverpool with Liverpool Cycle Tours. With three tours to pick from you can jump on an Ebike for an Electric Beatles Tour, get the heart rate going on a city tour touching on all of Liverpool’s best landmarks or head on a Walking & Drinking tour round the best pubs in the city.


LIVERPOOL CITY SIGHTS TOUR

Meet your tour guide on the City Sights bus and enjoy the ride around Liverpool seeing all of the famous landmarks from where The Beatles used to hang out to our UNESCO World heritage Waterfront. The expert tour guide will be able to fill you in with all the facts and knowledge of our wonderful city as the wheels on the bus go round.


BEATLES FAB FOUR TAXI TOUR

Jump in the back of one of the special Beatles Fab Four Taxi cabs and get taken on a magical journey around the city. There are six different tours to choose from depending on what you want to see but whatever you pick you’ll no doubt have a FAB time. 


PEAKY BLINDERS OFFICIAL TOURS

If you’re a fan of Peaky Blinders then a trip to Liverpool to go on the Peaky Blinders filming locations tour is a must. Seeing as the city was chosen for filming due to our well preserved Victorian architecture there will be plenty to see. Fans will have the opportunity to see the locations from the show up close and personal and hear anecdotes from the making of the series.

RIBA LIVERPOOL CITY TOUR

RIBA Liverpool City Tours tell the story of Liverpool’s past, present and future through the buildings and spaces that make up the city. There are five different walking tours you can take part in; Gateway to the World; City of Culture, Learning & Faiths; Sculpture, Culture & Civic Pride; The Ropewalks: Growth, Decline & Regeneration and Liverpool One: Remaking a City Centre. 


OLD DOCK EXPERIENCE

The origin of Liverpool’s fortune lay buried under Liverpool ONE for centuries until they were revealed during excavations on the site in 2001. Embark on a guided tour of the world’s first commercial enclosed wet dock and discover how the brave idea and innovative feat of engineering shaped Liverpool’s destiny forever.

Tours are available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from the Merseyside Maritime Museum. 


FOOTBALL STADIUM TOURS

If you’re a football fan than a trip to Liverpool isn't complete without visiting one of our famous football stadiums for a tour. If you’re a fan of the reds then head over to Anfield Stadium to see where Liverpool FC play. If you’re more of a blue then Everton’s grounds, Goodison Park, will be more to your liking. If you’re impartial then why not do both! 

Each tour is different but you’ll get the chance to stand pitch side, see the dressing rooms and press rooms, and so much more!


There you have it, loads of ways to explore our amazing city. Let us know what tour you are heading on over on our Twitter @VisitLiverpool
