What a gem....this is a must for visitors to Liverpool who are interested in history. The escorted tour took 1.5 hours and was delivered by nat trust volunteers who were extremely knowledgeable. We plan to visit again.

This is well worth the visit(national Trust property) its best to book ahead during the busy season as it is a guided tour through the history and photos of Hardman.

Checking on the National Trust app, it looks like The Hardman’s house has closed for winter & will re-open mid March 2019. The entrance is the block behind the house but presumably closed up till next year.

We had no problem booking at all. Rang about a week before we visited. Perhaps send an email to them. Hope you get it sorted. Pete

We did not have any problems when we booked, maybe they are having technical difficulties. I would leave a message and then turn up and book your tour time. They are all so helpful.
