Mersey Tunnel Tours
As well as learning about the construction of the tunnel, you will walk round the unique Grade II listed Art Deco George's Dock Building to visit the original control room, see giant ventilation fans in action and go down to watch the traffic in the tunnel, deep below the city streets.
You will be able to find out why the tunnels are so unique and also that they have featured in several Hollywood movies!
