Liverpool’s favourite icon, Kitty Wilkinson returns for two walking tours this Spring.
The Kitty Wilkinson Walking Tours will be returning to Liverpool for two dates this Spring with limited spaces available. Taking place on Sunday 10th April and Sunday 1st May, the tour allows participants to step back in time to a victorian Liverpool.
The tour trails around some of the places that used to be inhabited by local heroine Catherine Wilkinson, or “Kitty” as we all know her.
This Iconic Liverpool legend overcame all adversity to become a pioneer of the washhouse and public baths, saving lives from cholera.
Starting the tour at St Georges Hall, we will visit The Bluecoat, the former site of the Old Dock, Renshaw Street Chapel, the Workhouse, and Kitty’s Grave at St James Cemetery. We will be led by Kitty Wilkinson’s statue (played by actress Samantha Alton) and she will relay her life and times in Victorian Liverpool.
The tour begins at the steps of St Georges Hall by the War Memorial at 10.30am and will last around 2 hours.
Please wear comfortable shoes, ensure you visit the bathroom before the tour commences. Bring an umbrella or water proof if rain is forecast. Binoculars will be a bonus – there’s lots to see.
Tickets are priced at £10.00 per adult, £8.00 for children/concessions.
