What can you expect from the walk?

This tour gives you a unique insight into life in Liverpool during the two World Wars. You will learn the effect of war on Liverpool and Liverpudlians.

Liverpool was only second to London in terms of the bomb damage caused during the 2nd World War so the impact was far reaching.

This walking tour takes in the many memorials to both World Wars including the 1921 memorial to all the Cunard employees who died in the war. The Liverpool Naval memorial,  the Repatriation Memorial and many other famous sites.

We will walk from the Pier Head along Canada Boulevard up to Walker House and Horton House & Exchange Flags, beneath which was the bunker where commanders and WRNS and WAAF personnel worked every day and night in the Map Room, the nerve centre of the Battle of the Atlantic.

If you would like to extend the walk join us as we continue our walk to the Cenotaph in front of St. George’s Hall. This Cenotaph is a Grade 1 listed memorial. Life carried on during the war and Commonwealth troops were stationed nearby. The hall itself was a scene of many dances and blossoming romances.
