Mersey Tunnel Tours Update: Wednesday 21 July 2021

Following the removal of most Covid-19 restrictions on Monday 19 July, we are planning for Mersey Tunnel Tours to return from Thursday 26 August 2021. Tickets will go on sale w/c 26 July 2021. 

Please note roadworks around Georges Dock Building may change the entrance point for some tours in late summer. We will notify customers in advance if their tours are affected by the roadworks and will confirm a meeting/ assembly point via email.

To help keep everyone safe we have reduced the capacity of the tours to 16 people. Visitors will also be required to wear a face covering on the tour. Hand sanitiser is available throughout the tour and we would encourage visitors to sanitise their hands and keep a safe distance from other visitors.

We have also been awarded the official UK ‘We’re Good To Go’ mark to show that we have followed government and industry Covid-19 guidelines and have processes in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing. 

Mersey Tunnel Tour gift vouchers are valid until December 2022.

Tour Details

Starting at the Georges Dock Building, the tours take place on Thursday evenings at 5pm, and Saturday mornings at 10am, the tour will take approx two hours. Unfortunately, only children over 10 years of age are allowed on the tour.

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 also find out which Hollywood movies the tunnel has featured in! 

There are a lot of steps to walk up and down during the tour and therefore it is not suitable for people with mobility, breathing and sight difficulties. The tour is also inadvisable for people in the later stages of pregnancy.
