Tour description provided by Viator

Audiences can expect a 90-minute, theatrical, walking tour with the infamous and distinctive flavor of street theater-style guiding with exclusive access into the city's darkest and less well-known avenues within the boundary of the city's seven original streets. Locations include the lofty banking halls of Castle Street, the regal opulence of Town Hall, the crooked alley-ways, and sulfuric lamp-lit lanes in the now bustling commercial district. Ending the immersive tour experience within the boundary of a medieval garden hidden beneath a Gothic spire, entered through a trapdoor, and named by Herman Melville himself...The Dead House.
Listen to the captivating tales of Liverpool's history through the ages from the miserable Medieval Period to the Victorians in all their contrasts. See for yourself the stunning architecture and secret streets of Liverpool’s Commercial District. Witness the city seascape that inspired Herman Melville, the author of Moby Dick. Delve into the clandestine corners that housed America’s secret head quarters during the Civil War. Listen to the tales of slavery, plague, cholera, and the filthy slums that so many poor souls found to be their final resting place.
