The Liver Birds have represented Liverpool as the symbol of the city for over 800 years, and Liverpool is also home to over another 100 birds dotted around the city streets.
Bringing a touch of history and capturing the beauty of the city streets along the way, is ArtsGroupie’s Liver Bird Safari Walking Tour.
Although people of Liverpool and beyond are quite partial to the world-famous duo Bertie and Bella who stand tall in all their aniseed green glory on top of the iconic Liver Building, the tour allows you to get to know the history behind the other hidden birds of the city that are enriched in Liverpool’s fine tapestry.
The fun two-hour walking tour safari takes bird-spotting to a whole new level and is perfect for all the family to be active while also learning the history of Liverpool along the way.
Meeting point for the tour begins outside front gates of The Bluecoat and visits various locations across the city, ending at the world-famous waterfront.
Walks commence twice daily at 10.30am and 2.00pm with various dates available from 31st May onwards throughout the year.
Ticket prices range from £12.00 per adult to £10.00 per child/concessions and are available to book HERE.
The Department of Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) and the Tourism Alliance have confirmed that walking tours can continue with up to 30 people, as long as any group of friends or family within the tour is no larger than six, and the walk operates within Covid Secure Guidance.
The following measures in place:
- group sizes are capped at 15 people in total
- the tour must be booked in advance
- the group will be reminded to maintain social distancing.
- We stay outside at all times
- People can wear masks if they choose to do so and we encourage them to bring their own hand-sanitiser
Participants of the tour are advised to wear comfortable shoes and ensure you visit the bathroom before the tour commences. Bring an umbrella or waterproof clothing if rain is forecast. Binoculars are an added bonus if you wish to see the birds up close.
