Fantastic tour, brought to life by the two guides, John & Danny. Many interesting facts about the dock and the work done in preserving it while they were building Liverpool One. The symbolism of the cascade fountain on Thomas Steers Way is fascinating.

We booked this tour at the Maritime Museum.It was very interesting as it gave a potted history of Liverpool from its charter to become a city. The guides John and Steve were welcoming and knowledgeable. A well spent hour.
