Coronavirus: Important Information

Due to current government guidelines on indoor guided tours, we are unable to reopen the tours at this point in time. We will review when Tunnel Tours can reopen from 21 June, which is in line with ‘Step 4’ in the government ‘Out of Lockdown’ roadmap. We remain hopeful that we will be able to open during the summer and will continue to update as the situation evolves.

Mersey Tunnel Tour gift vouchers are valid until December 2022.

Tour Details

Starting at the George Dock Building, the tours take place on Tuesday, Wednesday and 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.
