About
The Friends of Williamson's Tunnels are the custodians of two fascinating sections of Williamson’s Tunnels. The first, is Paddington, which is formed of multiple and impressive brick arched chambers. These chambers include the cathedral like Level 4, 60ft below street level, located on ‘Paddington’, Edge Hill, L7 3RG. Visits to Paddington are available free of charge. Our second site is Joseph Williamson’s House, we are currently working hard to uncover the hidden history of Joseph's House and its subterranean chambers beneath - Wine Bins, Sandstone Arch, Gash and the famous Banqueting Hall. We have recently uncovered Joseph’s Kitchen, complete with 4 large fireplaces & cooking Ranges. Williamson’s House is on Mason Street, Edge Hill L7 3EW. Extended visits to Joseph’s house are members only. All Visits can be arranged directly from our web site, e-mail or telephone. All visits must be booked in advance and are Free of charge, though we welcome donations

This is a must do if you are visiting or indeed if you’ve lived in the area for over a decade like us. The historical significance of the tunnels to the city and wider area is phenomenal. Ryan and John are five star guides - typical Liverpool humour, depth of knowledge and no question went unanswered . Well done to you both . Keep up the great tour experience

We went as a family today for a tour (age range 12 - 80) and every one of us had a fabulous time we learnt new facts about our Fabulous City and its history!! Colin was our tour guide and he did a fantastic job he was enthusiastic, informative and passionate about restoring this fabulous series of tunnels and vaults under the city. Totally recommend a tour we loved it that much we became members and can’t wait to go back and have another look at this subterranean world!! Lynn was brilliant when we booked in too super organised and welcoming. Thank you all very much ❤️

Loved visiting here and finding out more about the local history. Mike our guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the place and all the other volunteers were very friendly too. We would definately go back in a few years time to see if anymore tunnels had been uncovered. It’s free with a suggested donation of £5 pp, absolute bargain!! Thanks, Marc n Leonie, Cornwall.

Visited back in November after promising to go there for ages - then Covid got in the way. But seeing the tunnels mentioned in the new series of Doctor Who made me make the effort to book and see what they were all about. Booked via email and it was really easy. The tour on the day was informative and such an usual experience. I'm greatly impressed by how much work the Friends have done to first of all secure the permission to excavate these 'tunnels' and then remove all the material by hand. A real labour of love and the guides really get that across on the tour. Highly recommended.

Such a fascinating tour, Mike was a really knowledgeable guide, and the whole experience makes you so curious about Williamson's motivations, it's good to leave with questions! I'm looking at following up with The Mole of Edge Hill!

It was warmer underground than above, so leave your big coats when you pick up your high vis and helmet!

There's nowhere to get a coffee nearby so get there at your allocated time. My 10 year-old struggled a bit with standing listening so I'd take a bit if a treasure hunt/quiz if I was going again - eg photograph one items for: eating, peeing, sleeping, smoking, housework, playing etc.
