Hello - My name is Neil, I am 65 years old and have Lived and worked in Liverpool all of my life. I am a great admirer of the city, its people and its culture. I have been working as a local guide since 2012 undertaking over 200 full day tours in and around the city. I am happy and proud to report I consistently receive 5 STAR reviews for my tours and will endeavour to ensure this continues. This free walking tour is the culmination of my work so far. I have been astonished at the changes to the city landscape over the last 20 years and have witnessed the resurgence of Liverpool to become once again a global city of importance. I will be proud to guide you through this cities many wonderful attractions. I often say my life my earliest memory at the age of eight was hearing the iconic roll of drums that opened the Beatles first massive hit 'She Loves You' on the radio. My love of their unique sound and melodies has never diminished since. Ever proud of our most famous sons’ Beatles fans will find Liverpool still dances to the Mersey Beat! If you should book a free walking tour with me you will hopefully find me, as others do, a warm and friendly man with a wicked sense of humour and a genuine love for his City. I look forward to meeting you and sharing safely an unforgettable experience of Liverpool.

Tour description

Liverpool has some of the finest and historic public houses in the UK I have selected a few of the best that will help tell the story and understand the unique culture of this amazing city!
We tour the City and see all the sights that make Liverpool the great tourist destination that it undoubtedly is. Along the way you can enjoy the hospitality within whilst we also savour the elegance of the pub interiors and atmosphere. The UK beer brewing industry has undergone a major renaissance in recent times, there has never been a better time to taste just a few of the large selection of local craft ales on offer (the consumption of alcohol is not compulsory!)
Each carefully selected pub has a different history lesson to reveal, from Liverpool's vital early role in the transatlantic trade of Slaves, Sugar, Tobacco, and Cotton. To the mass emigrations of the 1800s, the terrors of the Blitz, and of course The Beatles. The fall and rise of its docklands, and shining through it all, the unique wit and character of the locals, the 'Scousers' Liverpool Pierhead and Ferries The Royal Albert Dock Mathew Street (The Cavern Club) Castle Street and Town Hall St Nicholas Place and Church
This tour is not suitable for children!

To start our weekend in Liverpool, we did the walking tour of Liverpool through the pubs. Safe to say it exceeded our expectations and we had such a great time! Neil was able to provide lots of various interesting facts across the city that we continued to talk about for the rest of the weekend! Thank you Neil!
