Liverpool’s most famous historic ghost walk!

From the grandeur of our Cathedrals to the depths of the  Necropolis

Our Signature Dish includes an optional  FREE EXTRA Odyssey into the deep dark heart of St James’ Cemetery at the end for those brave enough to do so… If there’s time, ask your guide on the night for details! 

The Hope Street Shivers experience won ‘Guided Tour of the Year’ at the 2017 National Tourism Awards with VisitEngland.


Audiences will be guided through the handsome Cathedral Quarter of Hope Street, begining the journey outside Liverpool’s most historic alehouse, The Philharmonic Dining Rooms. 

This tour experience takes in both of the city’s striking Cathedrals, the crooked smile of Rodney Street and the mysterious story of Will McKenzie’s blackened pyramid tomb. Bare witness to the faded grandeur of the old Wellington Rooms and the shadowy opulence of the City’s Georgian Old Town.

Your guides will conclude the tour beneath the Gothic majesty of Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral in St James’ cemetery, the City’s former necropolis, resting place for nearly 58,000 souls (where for over a hundred years something sinister has lurked)

Popular with all age groups The Hope Street Shivers appeals to families, friends looking for something different to enjoy together, it’s a great alternative for a team building activity or indeed a romantic scare for two – this experience has something for everyone.
