A must visit

We totally enjoyed ourselves having an explore around the Queensway tunnel. The two guides were very informative....a must to anybody looking to understand more about how our tunnels function.


The tour was fabulous giving us an insight into how the tunnel was created and also the day to day workings. The team who took us around where brilliant and looked after us all so well. Would definitely recommend and next time I visit Liverpool with my family I will be taking them on this tour.


A fascinating couple of hours. Having used the tunnel regularly for 50 years, it was wonderful to see how such an amazing feat of engineering functions. Highly recommend it!
