Public Tour 3 - Shipping & Shopping: Liverpool One & The Albert Dock
Left as a mud-filled ruin in the 1970's, Liverpool's early-Victorian Albert Dock miraculously escaped demolition, to become the vibrant, arts and leisure precinct that you see today. This tour links it with the enticing Liverpool One area; a brilliantly user-friendly modern shopping quarter which sympathetically incorporates elements of the earlier street plan of 19th Century maritime Liverpool. The walk ends at the hidden Georgian gem of the Bluecoat School.
Tour 4 - St George's Plateau: The Liverpudlian Forum
Liverpool's St George's Hall is one of the greatest classical revival buildings in the world and is beautifully balanced by the grand porticoes of the world-class libraries and museums which face it across the cobbles of William Brown Street. There is a forum-like atmosphere here, enhanced by the elegant 1860's Wellington Column which rises above the surrounding buildings. There is more than a touch of London's Trafalgar Square about the whole ensemble.
Tour 5 - The Georgian Quarter & The Two Great Cathedrals
Street after unexpected street of elegant Georgian brick, stucco and stone houses extend in all directions around and between the two great cathedrals of St James and Christ the King. This tour explores the whole area, which also houses many of the fine buildings of Liverpool's two universities. The walk ends at the exuberantly Art Nouveau Philharmonic Hotel, probably the grandest and most elaborately decorated pub in Great Britain!
Tour 1 - The First Seven Streets, Liverpool's Commercial Heart
Although the ancient fishing village of Liverpool has been long covered over by the superb commercial and maritime buildings you see today, its original network of seven streets with their medieval names still forms the core of the city proper. This tour explores the area around the Town Hall, Exchange Flags, Water Street, Castle Street and St Nicholas's Church - and ends with an unusual glimpse of a side of Queen Victoria not much mentioned in the history books...
