Owner description: A former school tucked away in the city center. One of the oldest and most attractive buildings in Liverpool now plays host to contemporary art and performance displays. The rear secret garden is a tranquil, picturesque place to take a breather from the surrounding hubbub.

A really interesting tour of Liverpool with two very knowledgeable guides. Even though I have lived in Liverpool for a number of years they pointed out things which I had never noticed before (even though I pass them nearly every day!) A very enjoyable way to spend an afternoon and I will sign up for the next one!

Excellent. Informative and illuminating. A tour that will teach you to " look up" and "look down" as you walk around Liverpool - revealing hidden parts of Liverpool's heritage. Thoroughly enjoyable. A tour that everyone who loves Liverpool should do once!

We have been on a Bluecoat free walking tour of Liverpool. Our guides Joan and Arthur were very friendly and knowledgeable. They took their time to explain hidden details of the city to us and although we are from Liverpool we still learned a lot and it made you appreciate the city from a different viewpoint. The only down side was the city noise made it impossible to hear everything at times but this can't be avoided on a city centre walk. Perhaps just a smaller group might have helped but I can understand why the walk was so popular. The guides were so knowledgeable, maybe it would have been nice to have a little Q&A session at the end back at the Bluecoat with some extra info available. Loved it though!

Just been on the Bluecoat's History of Cultural Liverpool Walk and wanted to say how excellent it was. Really interesting hearing about all the buildings and statues that I have walked past every day and had no idea about there history. The Bluecoat guides were very knowledgeable and entertaining. The walk lasted for one and a half hours and covered about a mile of the city centre. We will be signing up for the next one!

Popped in to downstairs cafe for coffee, chocolate and quick bite, well impressed by choice for veggie, halloumi and olive, and hummous and pimientos, makes a nice change from the usual "oh give them a cheese sarnie, thatll do" of a lot of places.

Very tasty, very pleasant staff, will use again when we come to Liverpool for longer next year

Music in the courtyard was good, didnt do much else of the complex, next time!
