Liverpool History and Culture: A Self-Guided Audio Tour along the River Mersey


Select Option


This self guided audio tour will take you on a winding path through Liverpool city centre where you will discover much of its fascinating history and culture.

Described as one of the finest neo-classical buildings in the world, you’ll start at Liverpool’s magnificent St George’s Hall. From there you enter the city centre to follow the trail of the ancient pool. Here you will learn of the controversial reasons behind the transformation of Liverpool from a tiny fishing village into one of the world’s greatest seaports.

You’ll get answers to some fascinating questions along the way too, including:

• Why are more than 100 Frenchmen buried in the city centre’s most beautiful gardens?
• Why is Liverpool called Liverpool?
• Why is the Cavern Club not the Cavern Club? (You did read that right)
• What happened to Liverpool Castle?
