The Shankly Tours are one of the most popular experiences our guests can enjoy when they stay with us at The Shankly Hotel, but it’s not just the public that have been enjoying our truly unique and exciting tour of Liverpool.
The city has been lucky enough to host special charity matches at the legendary Anfield Stadium over the years, featuring some of the biggest names in international football.
Whilst here on charitable business, it only seemed right that the legends would explore the city and find out more about the culture that makes Liverpool the best city in the world.
Real Madrid Legends’ Tour of Liverpool
In 2017, Anfield welcomed Real Madrid legends to our great city to play an amazing game of football and explore Liverpool. Following the mighty Reds’ 4-3 victory over the Spanish giants, the Real Madrid legends were treated to an unforgettable tour around the home of the Liver Bird.
Having collaborated with Real Madrid Football Club and LFC, the Shankly Experience team crafted an exciting city tour for the visiting footballers. Embarking on a cultural journey around the city, the team were able to experience everything Liverpool had to offer, from Mathew Street, The Cavern Club and The Beatles’ homes, to footballing beacons like The Shankly Playing Fields and Melwood.
Topped off with an incredible private lunch in our stunning Baby Eden function room at The Shankly Hotel, the tour was one that will surely stick with the Real Madrid legends for years to come.
Welcoming Bayern Munich Legends
This year, it was Bayern Munich’s turn to attempt to defeat the legendary Red heroes, but both teams played incredibly well and came up evens with a 5-5 draw.
The German team’s legends enjoyed a similar experience to Real Madrid’s team last year, with a luxurious meal in the coveted Garden of Eden at The Shankly Hotel. Some of Bayern’s most well-loved players took a seat in the beautiful venue and enjoyed the spectacular views over the iconic skyline.
Our hotel is the perfect place for legends to visit. It stands proud as a lasting monument to one of football’s biggest heroes, Bill Shankly, the man who changed Liverpool Football Club forever.
