3 Unique Ways to Explore Liverpool’s History

Have you ever wanted to explore a piece of Liverpool’s history that’s a little off the beaten track?

If so we recommend one of these three unique tourist experiences that will show you pieces of Liverpool’s past from a unique perspective.

Slavery Trail

Take a walk back in time and explore Liverpool’s history by learning about what helped shape the exuberant waterfront architecture and early wealth of the city.

Liverpool waterfront

Liverpool’s position on the Mersey River made city docks the hub of UK trade from overseas. Goods such as tobacco, spices, cotton and Gin flowed through Liverpool bringing extreme wealth and prosperity to the area.

This wealth was also built on the sale of humans as goods at the peak of slave trading.

In what was once known as the ‘Slave Trade Triangle’ Liverpool played a crucial role.

The port of Liverpool served as the beginning and end point for a staggering three-quarters of the slaving ships coming to and from Africa and the Caribbean.

There are traces of this sad part of Liverpool’s history all around us, in the artwork found on the cities most prominent buildings and monuments.

Slavery in Liverpool

The Liverpool Slavery Trail is operated Eric Lynch, a man who has educated himself on the intricate details of Liverpool’s history.

Eric shares this wealth of knowledge with those partaking in the walkign city tour.

Shankly Experience

Another huge part of Liverpool’s interesting history is football.

Evident in the numerous tours in operation that ferry visitors around the two major premier league football stadiums and training grounds in the city.

We recommend another way to explore the unique footballing history of Liverpool with our Shankly Experience tour.

Take a journey with the Shankly Family Foundation and learn how the power of one man transformed a football club and stirred inspiration across a city of people.

Bill Shankly

Pioneering the ‘Liverpool way of play’, Bill Shankly made the city famous through football. Because of his efforts at LFC, his working-class background and outstanding moral compass, the people of Liverpool loved him.

His character was admired by many, known as a stand-up family man dedicated only to his wife, children and the game of football.

During a visit to the Shankly Hotel take a chance to explore a piece of Liverpool’s history through various displays of Shankly memorabilia.

Never before seen iconic items donated by the Shankly family can be viewed, such as rare photos and his own training tracksuit. This, as well as handwritten letters and tactics notes, give visitors a keen insight into the mind and life of the great man.

Why not book an exclusive training session on Shankly playing field to see where Bill Shankly worked and played during his Liverpool career?


Participants can enjoy running drills fashioned from handwritten notes taken from Shankly archives and learn to understand the ethos of Bill Shankly; that you can play hard as long as you work harder.

You can even play in and keep a limited-edition training kit as a memento.

The Shankly Tours and training experiences are bookable here and are a unique way to explore Liverpool’s history from a different perspective.

Williamson Tunnel tours

There are some magnificent sights across Liverpool city centre.

The Three Graces, The Anglican and Metropolitan Cathedrals and Albert Dock are all stunning pieces of Liverpool history…above ground.

How about what lies beneath the city?

Liverpool's history underground - Williamson's tunnels


In 1995 a series of tunnels were discovered by a university student beneath the streets of Liverpool. Since then these tunnels have been slowly excavated by volunteers.

The tunnels are the work of a wealthy tobacco baron, Joseph Williamson. After building what were known to have been grand mansions of unconventional design, Williamson moved onto constructing his obscure series of underground tunnels.

His reasons behind constructing these tunnels remain unknown but have been widely speculated upon.

Theories include Williamson’s involvement in a religious sect, convinced the apocalypse was looming. The tunnels, therefore, built as a post-apocalyptic haven for Williamson, his family and friends.

Others suspected Williamson of being involved in smuggling using the tunnels to transport goods across the city undetected.

A popular explanation is that Williamson’s tunnels were built to employ hundreds of soldiers returning from the Napoleonic war.

Liverpool's history underground - Williamson's tunnels


It seems construction carried on for 70 years and ceased immediately after Williamson’s death.

Now the Joseph Williamson Society are exploring this mysterious piece of Liverpool’s history concealed within these fascinating underground structures. You too can explore the Labyrinth as part of a guided tour and check out the progress of ongoing excavation.

Explore Liverpool’s History from the Shankly Hotel


If you are planning a short city break, then explore Liverpool’s history during one or all of these unique city tours.

Other popular city attractions such as the amazing nightlife and superb shopping complexes are within easy reach of the Shankly Hotel.
