Mersey Tunnel Tours Update

We are excited to announce that Mersey Tunnel Tours have returned.

To ensure our customers get the best experience with our guides, the tours are limited to 20 people per tour. For more information about Tunnel Tours please see our FAQs. 

Gift vouchers due to expire in 2020 or 2021 are now valid until December 2022. To redeem them please email tours@merseytravel.gov.uk

Tour Details

Starting at George's Dock Building, the tours take place on Tuesday 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.
