3-hour Liverpool Private City Tour

Enjoy a comprehensive overview of Liverpool's fascinating history and must-see sites with your private tour guide

ABOUT THE 3-hour Liverpool Private City Tour

This 3-hour private tour will introduce you to Liverpool's top attractions and walk you through the history of this niche UK travel destination. Your expert local tour guide will take you to must-see sights such as The Beatles Museum, the Albert Dock, the Victoria Monument and the Central Library.


A waterside gem, at the heart of England’s Merseyside

With a population of around 500,000, Liverpool exudes small-town Northern charm - while still packing in all the sights and hidden treasures that one might expect of a much larger city. Travelers visiting the North-West of England often have an entirely different experience to those transiting through London, and are rewarded with an insight into authentic UK culture, everyday life for the country’s citizens, and the intense sense of diversity seen between regions.

Despite being separated by a distance of a mere 34 miles, for example, Liverpudlians and Mancunians speak with completely different accents. Together with your expert local guide, you’ll unpack the origins of the unique ‘Scouse’ accent, the city’s checkered history as a hub of the transatlantic slave trade, and the WWII ‘Liverpool Blitz’, which saw Liverpool assume the unfortunate title of the UK’s most heavily-bombed city after London.

You’ll visit the iconic St George’s Hall, as well as St John’s Gardens, the World Museum, Hillsborough Monument and Bluecoat Chambers. This private tour also covers the Victoria Monument, the Lost Liverpool Castles, and the Beatles Statue - a waterside homage to some of the city’s most famous residents. Please note that the three-hour morning tour also has time to enter the Central Library to take in the building’s stunning internal architecture.

Explore Liverpool at your own pace

This 3-hour private tour covers the main must-see sights of Liverpool at a leisurely pace. You also have the option of stopping off for a coffee or a snack partway through. More time with your expert local guide means that you’ll get great inside scoops about museums, theatres, clubs or about the best local food and wines that will make the rest of your trip to Liverpool a memorable one.
