Brian was a charming and entertaining guide who gave us fascinating insights into the back- story of the built environment. Amazing buildings made more impressive by some understanding of their context. Thoroughly worthwhile and enjoyable. Highly recommended!

Call the central Tourist Information Centre, you can book thru them. Very interesting tour with lots of historical tour, well worth booking so many hidden buildings to find in Liverpool.
