Visiting - Groups and Tours
We offer a choice of guided tours which have been created to include real stories from people who worked in the bunker. The tours offer a further insight into the history of the bunker, well as the important work done – but some of the most fascinating detail comes from the personal stories which reveal what life was truly like living and working in secret under the streets of Liverpool.
Tours work well for groups of 20 per guide, but we can be flexible and two guides can be arranged for larger groups with the talk carefully staggered.
To book a tour for your group please get in touch.
The Western Approaches Tour
This is the main tour which covers the role of the facility in co-ordinating the Battle of the Atlantic. It looks at key personnel who worked in the bunker, what they did, what the rooms were used for and the importance of the work undertaken.
Tour duration approx. 1 hour 30 mins, £20 per group, up to 20 people
The Women of Western Approaches Tour
A massive 80% of the people who worked in the bunker were young women, aged between the 17-22, especially selected from all over the UK for their intelligence. This tour gives a personal insight with photographs and stories of some of these ladies, tales which have been shared by either themselves, or their relatives. This is a wonderful and often emotive and funny tour.
Tour duration approx. 1 hour 30 mins, £20 per group, up to 20 people.
THE VIP Tour
This tour includes a peek at some of the rooms which are not yet open to the public, such as the sleeping quarters, it also includes your choice of themed tour, hot drinks and cake for £20 per person for up to x30 people.
