Bucket list experience:

Last updated: 03 December, 2022
Expert travel writer: David Atkinson

Liverpool Football Club (LFC) has a proud sporting history and this behind-the-scenes tour to a site of footballing pilgrimage is a must-do for football fans.

The guided tour, led by a knowledgeable local guide, takes in all the essential sites, such as the home team dressing room, the pitch, player’s tunnel, cityscape views from the top level of the main stand, and selfies in the manager’s seat in the dugout. It’s an opportunity to celebrate 130 years plus of sporting heritage with broad appeal for all ages.

Don’t miss

The Liverpool FC Story Museum is well worth 30 minutes or so after touring the stadium to learn about the club’s history and have your photo taken with silverware in the Trophy Exhibition Room.
