The Liver Bird Safari

An alternative way to discover the history of Liverpool…

Liverpool is famous for the birds on the magnificent Liver Building, the first-ever skyscraper in the UK. But there are in fact over 100 Liver Birds in the City. Join us for a lively, fun 2-hour WALKING TOUR safari around the City Centre, starting at The Bluecoat, as we go Liver Bird-spotting and learn about the history of Liverpool along the way. Tour finishes near the Waterfront.

An ideal way to teach children and young people about local heritage, to appreciate the architecture and the historical landmarks we walk past without knowing. It encourages children to engage with local history and develop an appreciation for the place they live. Out tours promote walking for health and well-being.
