Welcome to Royal Liver Building 360, a tower tour and experience in the iconic Royal Liver Building. Our Tower Tour is a fun way of learning more about the history of the Royal Liver Building and experiencing the views from our 10th and 15th rooftop viewing platforms. Our tour takes you up through the west clock tower arriving first at the 10th floor giving you views across the Mersey as well as the highest external viewing point of the Great George Clocks. After this you ascend to the 14th floor behind the clock faces for an audio visual digitally mapped experience which lasts about 9 minutes before heading to the 15th floor for our 360 degree views of the City, the Docks and into the Wirral. Our tour is fully guided and lasts for around 60 minutes. Through out the attraction are a number of markers that can be activated by our app “Royal Liver Building 360” which help bring to life extra elements of the tour such as photos, videos, AR experiences as well as linking to google maps to help you explore the city further for its links to the building. Tours are done in groups of 15 (aged 7-11) plus two complimentary supervisor places, or groups of 12 (aged 12+) plus two complimentary supervisor places, along with a tour presenter. If your group is larger than this you will be across multiple consecutive tours. Tour times vary dependant on time of year but a schedule for your visit will be agreed at booking. The tour is only suitable for ages 7 and over due to the nature of the experience.

As part of the build up to World Book Day on Thursday 5th March and the Liverpool Readathon (2nd-13th March), Everton in the Community are launching a reading for pleasure initiative that will encourage primary school children across Liverpool to try a wide range of books. The ‘Reading Bingo’ card provides pupils with 14 different challenges, from reading a book of poetry to listening to an audiobook. Every time the children complete a challenge, they score a goal. For every 5 goals (5 books) a pupil scores, your school will be entered to win an activity day from Everton in the Community such as glow in the dark dodgeball or a day of football coaching for the school. The competition will close on the 5th March (World Book Day). Schools will then have one week to send across their bingo cards. Results will then be released the week commencing 25th March and winners will be announced. To download the bingo card, posters and to find out more please visit http://www.liverpoollearningpartnership.com/reading/everton-in-the-community-reading-bingo/
