Liverpool: Theatrical History Tour and The Dead House

1. Liverpool: Theatrical History Tour and The Dead House

Embark on a history tour of Liverpool led by a theatrical guide, and marvel as the city's original streets are brought to life using street theater techniques. Get exclusive access to the darkest and less well known avenues, and encounter landmarks such as the lofty banking halls of Castle Street. Admire the regal opulence of the Town Hall and venture down crooked back alleys and lamp-lit lanes in the now bustling commercial district. End within the boundary of a medieval garden, hidden beneath a Gothic spire, entered through a trapdoor. Named by the American author, Hermann Melville as the "Liverpool Dead House" for its grisly and gruesome nature, the undergroud morgue is located within the quiet surroundings of the Church of Our Lady and St. Nicholas and has remained closed to the public for over a century. Learn the history of the site, such as how it was used as a temporary police station during World War II, and how in the 18th and 19th centuries locals would come to peer through the grim iron grates and gaze upon the faces of the deceased.

Great tour, history with a difference!

You should be able to walk quite well and already speak the English language, then it is really entertaining. The visitors are involved and ........ Oh well, give it a try, it's really fun !!!!!

Fantastic guides made the walk entertaining and also learnt something new along the way. Got to be agile for the last part but was warned before hand.
