Our Mersey Tunnel Tour takes you on a unique behind the scenes look at the famous Queensway Mersey Tunnel which opened in 1934.

As well as learning about the construction of the tunnel, you will visit the original control room, see giant ventilation fans in action and go down to watch the traffic in the tunnel, deep below the city streets.

You will be able to find out why the tunnels are so unique and also that they have featured in several Hollywood movies!

"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."
