Looking for a tour with a difference? Book a Mersey Tunnel Tour for the amazing price of just £8.00 per person and learn some fantastic history along the way!
The Mersey Tunnel Tours take you on a unique behind the scenes look at the famous Queensway Tunnel, which began construction in 1925. The tour will not only give you insight into the construction of the tunnel, you will also have the opportunity to visit the original control room, see the giant ventilation fans in action and go down to watch the traffic in the tunnel, deep below the city streets.
The tunnels which opened back in 1934, are so unique and have also featured in several Hollywood movies! Blockbuster films shot in the tunnel include Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1, Fast & Furious 6 and Jack Ryan.
Starting at the George Dock Building, tours take place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings at 5.00pm, and Saturday mornings at 10.00am, the tour will take approximately two hours. Unfortunately, only children over 10 years of age are allowed on the tour.
For groups of 12 or more, tours are available Saturday afternoons and other times by prior arrangement.
There are many steps to walk up and down during the tour and therefore it is not suitable for people with mobility, breathing and sight difficulties.
All tours must be booked in advance, so book now and start EXPLORING!
