Tour A – Liverpool was Made for Me

As Bill Shankly said himself, “Liverpool was made for me and I was made for Liverpool”.

After this one of a kind tour, we’re sure that you’ll feel the same. Tailored for football and Shanks fans from start to finish, this tour provides the ultimate experience of the city.

Bill Shankly

Starting and finishing at the Shankly Hotel, you can expect a visit to the home of Liverpool FC rivals the Blues, along with the new Stadium and Museum at Liverpool Football Club’s Anfield home.

You can also enjoy a visit to Bill Shankly’s very own West Derby home and exclusive anecdotes about the Scots legend, adding a personal touch to the day.

Following a tour around the Shankly Hotel’s public memorabilia, you’ll also be granted access to our unseen collection which isn’t available to the public, and have the chance to take a photo to cherish with our Virtual Reality Shankly Experience.

After the tour you can enjoy a free drink and will be awarded 20% off  in our stunning Bastion Bar and Restaurant.

Tour B – The Fab 4 and Shanks Tour

Undoubtedly one of the most iconic and timeless pieces of Liverpool’s history, we’re sure you’ll want to add an element of Beatles to your visit. And we have the ultimate surprise for you to enjoy on this tour.

Following the devastating effects of war, both the Fab 4 and Bill Shankly played an integral role in Liverpool’s rise to success. With the Beatles unknowingly redefining music and Shankly leading the Reds to victory, the city was revived with a new found sense of hope and passion. Linked by their success, fans of LFC would recite Beatles lyrics from the terraces in support of their team, while in 1965 the Beatles boys sent a telegram wishing him luck for the FA Cup Final.

To refuel after a day of excitement, this package also includes a free drink and 20% off at our elegant Bastion Bar and Restaurant.

Tour C – The Match Day Tour

If you’re visiting Liverpool specifically for a match day, we recommend booking our fantastic Match Day Tour. To get in the mood before the game kicks off, this tour takes you on the LFC Stadium Tour and features our fantastic Bill Shankly elements from Tour A.
