Following government advice about the spread of COVID-19/Coronavirus Mersey Tunnel Tours have made the decision to cancel all tours in April and May 2020. If you have purchased a ticket for a tour in April or May, Ticket Quarter will be in touch shortly to arrange a refund. If you have booked a ticket using a gift voucher please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
