The Ultimate Beatles Tour of Liverpool

Home of the Beatles, you can’t explore the best of Liverpool without walking in the shoes of the Fab Four. From Liverpool’s leafy suburbs to city centre landmarks, there’s an essence of John, Paul, George and Ringo wherever you go. At Shankly Tours, we’re here to ensure that your sight-seeing journey runs smoothly, so that you can enjoy a full Beatles experience. Your visit to the city may be fleeting, but there’s plenty you can fit in with some organising.

Cementing an iconic era, the rise of the Beatles ran parallel with Liverpool Football Club’s rise into a ‘Bastion of Invincibility’. It didn’t take long for excitement surrounding Liverpool’s stars to intermix; Bill Shankly’s Liverpool FC was one of the first clubs to have fans sing Beatles songs from the terraces. Liverpool is now renowned worldwide for two defining reasons: the Fab Four and its vibrant football culture. So, we thought we’d combine the two to create the ultimate tour of Liverpool.

For Beatles fans visiting Liverpool, it can be tricky to fit everything in. To truly experience the Beatles’ Liverpool, you’ll need to head out of the city centre and discover the most sentimental spots of the suburbs.  That’s where we come in to save the day!

What to Expect

  • Begin and finish the tour at the fabulous Shankly Hotel in Liverpool city centre
  • A combination of sights, incorporating Bill Shankly/football history and Beatles landmarks
  • The houses of the Fab Four
  • Strawberry Fields gates
  • Anfield football stadium
  • Bill Shankly’s former home
  • 20% off food & drink at the Shankly’s Bastion Bar & Restaurant
  • A once in a lifetime Beatles/Shankly memorabilia viewing at the Shankly Hotel

A Full Experience of Liverpool

Nestled away from the bright lights of the city centre, the story behind John Lennon’s nostalgic and and dreamy “Strawberry Fields Forever” revolves around Lennon’s very own childhood dreamworld.

You’ll be taken to the gatepost to Strawberry Field, where Lennon and his childhood friends would spend hours playing within the wooded garden. The popular tourist attraction is located close to Lennon’s childhood home in Woolton, one of Liverpool’s most scenic suburbs. A chance to truly follow in the footsteps of John Lennon, exploring this sentimental suburb will certainly be a day to remember for Beatles fans from near and far.

The Bastion Bar & Restaurant

What better way to end a busy day than with some hearty food at the Bastion? Upon returning from your tour, you’ll be awarded 20% off at this Liverpool favourite for food and drink, the perfect excuse for a refreshing Beer or a fruity cocktail!

With an array of delicious dishes to pick from, you’ll find everything from our famous Shankly Burger to Beer-Battered Fish and Chips, Steak and Mushroom Pie and Butternut Squash, Sweet Potato and Rocket Risotto.

A Bastion Day of Sport: Food, Football & Boxing

If you’re stuck for plans this weekend, then look no further than the Bastion Day of Sport in Liverpool. In the Bastion Bar & Restaurant within the Shankly Hotel, we’ll be holding 3 unmissable events on Saturday 4th March 2017.

For LFC and boxing fans, it’s set to be a jam-packed day of action. You can find out full schedule below:

11:00 – 12:00 – Pre Match Breakfast Q&A with former Liverpool full back Vegard Heggem (including chance for photos/meet and greet)

17:30pm – Liverpool vs Arsenal Kick off 17:30 – exclusive match day menu and drinks offers available

10:30pm –  Haye vs Bellew live in Bastion with drinks offers on the bar following the conclusion of LFC vs Arsenal

Guests can either access all 3 events or attend separate events individually. Pre-booking for each event  is advised to avoid disappointment.

The Bastion Bar & Restaurant

Located within the Shankly, the Bastion is the perfect place to sit back with a beer and enjoy some live sport. This Saturday, you’ll be able to choose from our hearty match day menu. The menu features the Bastion’s famous Shankly Burger, Southern Fried Chicken Burger and good old fashioned Fish and Chips. Plus, our delicious 6oz Rump Steak with Chips, Mushrooms and Tomatoes.

And if it’s your first visit to the Liverpool hot spot, then don’t forget to take a look around at the Bill Shankly memorabilia around the restaurant and bar area. The Shankly Hotel provides guests with a fantastic range of personal memorabilia, thanks to the Shankly family themselves.

Haye V Bellew

Set to be an unforgettable night, we’ll certainly be rooting for Liverpool’s very own Tony Bellew when he takes to the ring. The Merseyside athlete grew from being a three-time ABA heavyweight champion, to making his professional boxing debut in October 2007.

One of the most intense grudge fights in modern British boxing history, Saturday will showcase the ongoing feud that everybody’s talking about. To say that the pair have “bad blood” is an understatement; the hype surrounding the fight was taken to a new level at Thrusday’s press conference when the two came head to head. While Haye issued a series of threatening remarks, Bellew shared:

“Nearly time to rock and roll. Lets see what happens. The main thing is no excuses. They have been put out to the media. We all get sore, we all get knocks and bumps. This is the combat business, it’s called boxing.”

Liverpool V Arsenal

Liverpool V Arsenal is also expected to provide plenty of entertainment. If Liverpool win tomorrow’s game then it will be their 50th home league win over Arsenal, so we have our fingers crossed that they’re ready!

To pre-book your space at the Bastion, just give our friendly team a call on 0151 541 9999.

 

Life is a Cabaret at The Shankly Hotel’s Fabaret Friday’s

It’s Showtime this Friday at The Shankly Hotel as we welcome Fabaret to the Bastion Bar and Restaurant. Provided by acclaimed Liverpool theatre production company Life in Theatre, Fabaret is sure to have everybody’s toes tapping by the end of the night.

What to expect

A fabulously fun night of free entertainment including live performances of sultry soul and funky Motown. For the movie lovers among you, there will even be a tribute to Bond films of old and new and a spot of Disney magic to round off a night of superb live entertainment.

A little history of Cabaret

Fabaret at The Shankly - Cabaret

Unless you have been living under a rock then you must be aware of the musical Cabaret starring a very young Lisa Moneli. The bowler hat, short shorts, and suspenders are an iconic Hollywood image today.

But the origins of Cabaret can be traced to the early 16th century in France. The meaning of the word originally pointed to the venue the performance was held in. Be it a bar, restaurant or nightclub, cabaret was often performed to patrons who were enjoying another leisure activity, the performance just being the background filler.

In short, Cabaret was not as grand as a theatre performance and came just short of being classed as a concert. Cabaret was essentially the DJ of ancient times, a soundtrack to accompany your evening meal or drinks.

Book your Fabaret today

The Shankly Hotel will be hosting this Fabaret spectacular for foreseeable Fridays to come.

Make sure you have your seat booked and like Lisa sang;

“What good is sitting alone in your room? Come hear the music play. Life is a Cabaret old chum Come to the Cabaret.”

Why not surprise somebody who loves live entertainment and book a Friday night at The Shankly?

You and your party can then enjoy a fun Fabaret performance in the Bastion Bar and Restaurant and then a luxury overnight stay in one of our Bill Shankly themed hotel rooms.

Fabaret is free to attend and the curtain lifts at 20:00 pm this Friday, do you have your dancing shoes ready?

Tour B – The Fab 4 and Shanks Tour

Liverpool is one of the most visited cities in the world, and arguably the legacy of the infamous Beatles has a lot to do with that!

There’s an array of iconic sights and venues across the land of yellow submarines that played a part in the lives of the four Liverpool lads. And for those waiting to see exactly what shaped the timeless band, our organised tour will go above and beyond fulfilling your dreams.

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?

shankly-balls123456

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

source; www.tunnelvision.com

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.
