About
A remarkable attraction in an unremarkable area of the city. Here is an extraordinary collection of tunnels and chambers commissioned by 19th century Victorian industrialist Joseph Williamson. His motivations for the work are still a mystery, but guided tours among what's thought to be just a small part of a much wider network offer plenty of insights.

Interesting tour of the tunnels created by Joseph Williamson in the early 1800’s.

Tour takes about 45 minutes and decent footwear is required as the tour follows a scaffold walkway. Low lighting levels and can be wet inside therefore care needs to be taken to avoid trips and slips.

Guide was very engaging and informative and tour included an interesting display of Victorian bottles and crockery collected when excavating the tunnels.

You can reach the heritage centre by a 10 minute walk up from the city through the university area.

Cold and wet

This is a really interesting look at a jewel under the streets of Liverpool. Waiting room first with a cup of coffee then the volunteers kick in with the guide beginning his narration below 62 mason Street which is still there on the surface. A great trip completely brought to life by these volunteers who have obviously been trained well. It was cold and wet down there
