Liverpool: Queensway tunnel tour, 24th Sept 2016

An exciting tour of the famous Mersey Tunnel in Liverpool and a good chance for me to show you round a few good bars in Liverpool afterwards!

The guided tour covers the history of the tunnel, its construction and showcases its engineering feats up close by offering behind the scenes access within the tunnel itself.

The Queensway tunnel is an amazing example of engineering and its connecting structures and support buildings are fantastic examples of art deco architecture. Construction of the tunnel began in the 1920's and by its completion it was the longest road tunnel in the world. It was also the first to span the River Mersey.

The guided tour covers the history of the tunnel, its construction and showcases its engineering feats up close by offering behind the scenes access within the tunnel itself.

I have a bit of a vested interest in this tour, as my Grandfather was one of the first men to staff the control center for the tunnel, so it would be great to see that first hand.

When & Where?

George's dock building, Liverpool, 10:00am, Saturday 24th September 2016

(best to turn up a bit early as I'm not sure how promptly they will start the tour)

George's dock building

We can convene outside the George's dock building, where the tour begins. This is a large monolithic Art Deco style building on the waterfront so it's hard to miss!

Afterwards

Once the tour is done we can head over to the Baltic Fleet which is just a few minutes walk along the waterfront. Anyone who can't make the 10:00am start for the tour can meet up with us here afterwards. There are also plenty of other interesting bars in the Baltic Triangle area nearby to explore afterwards.

If you get lost

Hopefully nobody will have too much trouble finding the escape room in the first place, but if you do get lost then you can call or text the Phone Robot for directions (or for some encouragement to come along): 0144 360 6367

We also always keep an eye on our Telegram group at the start of our events so you can get in touch with us there.
