Excellent tour which started with a warm welcome from Lynn (the lady who organised our tour) and Mike (our tour guide). Mike was fantastic, his knowledge of the project and willingness to share his experience as a volunteer helped us to understand step by step the story of the site as a whole. The tunnels are breathtaking; the amount of work originally required to; quarry, tunnel and complete the brick work is mind boggling. More than that is the monumental effort these volunteers have put in to not only save but excavate the site for us to enjoy is honourable. Massive thank you for such an interesting morning. We loved it.

Very, very informative. We had little idea what was here. I'm glad we came in cold as we have learnt so, so much. Cannot recommend this highly enough. It is excellent.

First off a massive thanks to Lynne for the friendly welcome, and an even bigger thanks to Tom our guide. His hands on experience of having been part of the excavation team, gave us a great insight into this truly wonderous place. With just myself and my wife on this tour, it was great to be able to throw questions at Tom. His enthusiasm and knowledge shine through, and really helped us understand and appreciate the marvel of what lay before us. I wont try and describe the "tunnels", as my words wont do it justice. If exploring underground chambers, caverns and cuttings appeals to you, then this is a must see. The ongoing (hard) work by the volunteers will hopefully mean newer discoveries will literally be unearthed, and preserved for all too see in the not too distant future. The website is a great place to start if you're thinking of visiting. From there you can book a tour, and on the day make sure you visit the correct location as there is seperate Heritage site nearby. Which although good isn't a patch on the FoWT experience. Thank you.

whole experience was brilliant, we couldn’t of asked for a better guide than Eric. Highly recommend this to anyone who wants to see some great history. Our guide Eric was very very knowledgeable about the history about the tunnels. Any questions we asked he had the answers in great detail. We moved to Liverpool 5 years ago and this has been our greatest tour. Keep up the good work

This tour is a real gem which gives a fascinating glimpse of subterranean Liverpool - accessed from a very ordinary-looking street on the edge of the city centre within easy walking distance of all the hotels. It must have took an enormous effort for Williamson’s workers to tunnel through the bedrock and build magnificent structures underground but what was his motivation? Theories abound but in reality no-one really knows. And what other sections of tunnel are waiting to be discovered? We know he was a prolific tunneler but no original maps or plans survive. It all adds to the mystery! Tour guides Lynn and Phil were very friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable - this attraction is run by a dedicated group of volunteers. There’s no entrance charge but you’ll probably want to make a donation so don’t forget to bring some cash.
