Shiverpool invite you to stretch your legs, take a deep breath of our River City’s salty sea air, and join us for a spooky stomp through time and place…

We dare you to journey through Liverpool’s most haunted heritage and share with us our sea-soaked stories…

On our journey your Spirit Guide will bring the pounding paves to life and invite you to take a step back in time and through that prism look upon those who’s footsteps we follow.

We will recount the most famous folklore tale in Liverpool and reveal the secrets of the city’s most infamous ghost, the Victorian Merchant Will McKenzie whose apparition and eerie pyramid tomb set a somber tone on Northern England’s most haunted thoroughfare Rodney Street.

Let us take you through the bloodied memories of Body snatchers and their gruesome trade.
