Queensway Tunnel Tour is a fascinating insight under the surface of George's Dock, which welcomes families with kids over 10 years old who are confident underground.
Opened in 1934, the Queensway Tunnel has helped to shape Merseyside as we know it today. However, there is a lot more to the Tunnel than a “hole in the ground”!
This tour takes you for a unique behind the scenes look at one of the ventilation stations, learning how they work and how the Tunnel itself was constructed. You will also see the Tunnel Control Room, where traffic flow, air quality and Tunnels system are monitored 24 hours a day, 365 days per year.
They'll take you beneath the City to see the Tunnel road surface and then further under the road surface into the depths! A great chance to light the enthusiasm for some secret schooling.
There are a great many steps to walk up and down during the tour, therefore it is unsuitable for anybody with breathing or walking difficulties. Plus it's important to be aware that only children over 10 years of age are allowed on the tour, with a maximum of two children per adult.
Please note that the address given is their postal address, details of where the tour begins etc will be given at time of booking.
