St George’s Hall are pleased to announce their guided tours are back from Saturday 15th August!
Running right through to December, their knowledgeable guides are ready to transport you on an incredible journey of the history-laden Grade I listed building.
From the doldrums of the law courts and holding cells to the grandeur of the Concert Room and Great Hall, you will be entertained and educated on a place where all memorable moments in Liverpool life converge.
In order to guarantee your safety, St George’s Hall have reduced tour numbers and introduced protective measures, in line with government guidelines.
New visitor protocol includes cleaning and disinfection procedures, increased attention to safety in communal spaces, protective equipment, and staff training.
These protocols describe specific processes and measures that are designed to make you feel safe and confident when you visit:
- Physical distancing is possible in all areas and facilities
Physical distancing measures will be in place throughout, using floor stickers, queue guidelines and one-way flow systems.
We have removed a number of tables and chairs from public areas, while the remainder have been arranged to comply with social distancing guidelines.
- Hand sanitiser stations in all main event areas
Alcohol-based hand sanitiser stations will be available for visitors on entrance to the building and in all main spaces.
- Increased cleaning and disinfection of all areas, paying special attention to high frequency touch items like doors
Prior to all events, all areas will have gone through a rigorous cleaning and disinfecting process. Cleaning and disinfecting frequency have been increased, and will be continued throughout your visit.
- Implemented improved air circulation processes to increase air quality
Where possible, we will be keeping external doors (and windows, where practically possible) open, to increase air circulation and quality.
We will be accepting cash-free payments only for the foreseeable.
- All food and beverages served following strict food safety procedures
Strict safety procedures will be followed while serving all food and beverages.
- Event-specific COVID-19 Risk Assessments undertaken
Each individual event request will be risk assessed based on its own specific requirements, so that we can all be confident that events within the City Halls can be delivered safely.
- All staff have been provided with hygiene and prevention training
St George’s Hall’s managers are working with all staff to ensure that they are fully confident and comfortable with the new prevention measures in place.
- Only accredited suppliers with robust COVID-19 prevention policies used
A COVID-19 risk assessment and safety policy will be compulsory for all of our event suppliers moving forward.
- Pre-registration or ticket purchase will now take place before events so that capacity can be carefully managed, and track and trace works effectively
The venue will be requesting that all events are pre-registered for the foreseeable, so that they can be comfortable with the set event capacity. Details will be kept for two weeks for track and trace purposes only.
Experience the extremes of Liverpool life with a visit to the prison cells, the imposing court rooms and the splendour of the biggest classical reception room in the UK: The Great Hall. This vast and splendid space is 169ft long, 77ft wide, and 82ft to the crown of the ornate barrel-vaulted ceiling. Adorned with statues of historic figures and illuminated by pretty chandeliers, this grand room also houses the Willis Organ, which was the largest in the country at the time that it was created.
