Liverpool Hidden History and Dead House Evening Walking Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Audiences can expect a 90-minute, theatrical, walking tour with the infamous and distinctive flavor of street theater-style guiding with exclusive access into the city's darkest and less well-known avenues within the boundary of the city's seven original streets. Locations include the lofty banking halls of Castle Street, the regal opulence of Town Hall, the crooked alley-ways, and sulfuric lamp-lit lanes in the now bustling commercial district. Ending the immersive tour experience within the boundary of a medieval garden hidden beneath a Gothic spire, entered through a trapdoor, and named by Herman Melville himself...The Dead House.
  • Join a spirit guide for a theatrical journey through Liverpool’s dark past
  • Discover the eerie Dead House, entered via a trapdoor below a Gothic spire
  • Hear chilling tales of slavery, plague, cholera, and the unquiet dead
  • Stroll darkened streets and lamp-lit alleyways as you learn the city’s history
What to Expect
Greet your spirit guide at the Queen Victoria Monument in the evening and set out through the city’s streets. Listen to captivating tales of Liverpool’s dark history from the miserable medieval period to the Victorian age of contrasts. Discover the banking halls of Castle Street and the lamp-lit alleys around the commercial district. Admire the city seascape that once inspired Herman Melville, author of Moby Dick, and the hidden corners that once concealed Confederate headquarters during America’s Civil War. Descend through a secret trapdoor into the mysterious Dead House before you end your tour amid an ancient churchyard where unquiet spirits wander.
