2013 Events

19th September – Night time tour of Liverpool – Guide Sylvia O’Malley

We set off at 6.30 with our guide Sylvia and headed into Liverpool via Old Swan & Queens Drive.  Sylvia enlightened us on our journey with lots of local history, tales & facts about the area.  Passing Everton & Liverpool football grounds & it was nice to see the regeneration taking place the surrounding area.

At Everton Brow we had a fantastic view of the beautiful sunset over the city & the Wirral peninsular.

We travelled through the Wallasey Tunnel to New Brighton so we could see the work taking place across the river in ‘Liverpool 2’ at the docks where the new deep water terminal is being constructed.

We drove along to Birkenhead & travelled through the tunnel & had a short tour around the Albert Dock before heading to Vauxhall Road & the Eldonian Village, where we had an excellent buffet & a welcome cup of tea!

Sylvia’s vast knowledge of Liverpool & its surrounding areas is phenomenal; it is always a pleasant & informative evening in her company.
