Heritage to Football: Tailored Tours of Liverpool

The city of 2 cathedrals, 2 iconic football teams and home to the Beatles, it can be hard to see the best of Liverpool’s dazzling sights all in one go. And that’s where Shankly Tours comes in to save the day!

Whether you’re visiting the city for a weekend or you’re staying for a full week, the variety of attractions in Liverpool aren’t always in walking distance of each other, so you can end up wasting time with a map.

To make your experience stress-free and worth your while, we’ve put together our very own Shankly Tours of Liverpool to ensure that you there’s truly something for everyone. For a set price to suit your group, you can experience Liverpool the way you want to, all with the one package.

If you’re travelling in a larger group or simply have a long list of sights to see, this is the perfect solution for keeping everyone happy as you see the best of the city.

Design Your Own Tour

If you’re someone who likes to plan things from scratch, then this option to design your own tour is ideal for you.

You may have an LFC fan in the group, someone who’s been dreaming of Strawberry Fields, or just fancy taking the perfect snap of Liverpool’s infamous architecture and maritime heritage. With this bespoke package, you have the freedom to pick something for everyone.

All you need to do is decide what your perfect tour of Liverpool would look like, let us know what you want to see and we’ll work out the best plan and price tailored to your group.

Tour A – Liverpool Was Made for Me

As the Shanks once said, “Liverpool was made for me and I was made for Liverpool”.

Taking you on a tour of the city that football legend Bill Shankly held close to his heart, you can experience a blend of the city’s best football heritage, and most iconic cultural sights.

Throughout this tour, enjoy exclusive Shankly family anecdotes to give you a real feel for the city through the eyes of Bill Shankly. The package also features a visit to Shankly’s West Derby home.

Taking you on a broad tour of the city’s football history, you’ll see the defining locations for the formation of both Everton and Liverpool Football Club. And of course, you can discover the connection between Bill Shankly and the city’s rivalling football teams. You’ll have the chance to visit both the home of the Blues, and the LFC new Stadium and Museum Tour at Anfield.

Back to the Shankly

And that’s not all! You’ll need to save some energy because you’ll be in for a treat when you return to the Shankly Hotel.

We’ll be taking you on a tour of our personal Shankly memorabilia, featuring unseen items that aren’t on display to the public. You’ll also have the chance to get your photo taken with the Shanks himself, thanks to our Virtual Reality Shankly Experience.

We sense that after this busy day, you may be in need of a cold pint and some tasty food! So at the end of the tour, you’ll be awarded 20% off all food and drink in the hotel’s stunning Bastion Bar and Restaurant.

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.

The growth of the Mersey Beat ran parallel with the rise of Liverpool FC into a ‘Bastion of Invincibility’, and LFC fans would often sing Beatles lyrics at matches. Since the city is renowned for the Fab Four and its thriving football scene, this tour combines the two, bringing you a unique tour that you won’t forget.

All for one price, you’ll be transported around the city from sight to sight, saving you lots of time.

Back to the Shankly

We didn’t want the tour to stop there, so on return to the Shankly, you’ll be taken on an exclusive tour of our Bill Shankly memorabilia AND have the chance to view a priceless piece of memorabilia linking Bill Shankly to the Beatles on a touching and personal level.

Again, we know you’ll be in search of an ice cold drink and some hearty British food! So, sit back and relax as you enjoy 20% off at the Bastion Bar and Restaurant, right within the hotel.

Tour C – The Match Day Tour

If you’re in town for a match day and want to see what our tours are all about, we offer a bespoke tour just for match days so that you can see the best of Liverpool.

Perfect for football fanatics and those who love the city, you can enjoy the Shankly elements of Tour A followed by an exciting match day stadium tour at Anfield.
