About
The Friends of Williamson's Tunnels are the custodians of two fascinating sections of Williamson’s Tunnels. The first, is Paddington, which is formed of multiple and impressive brick arched chambers. These chambers include the cathedral like Level 4, 60ft below street level, located on ‘Paddington’, Edge Hill, L7 3RG. Visits to Paddington are available free of charge. Our second site is Joseph Williamson’s House, we are currently working hard to uncover the hidden history of Joseph's House and its subterranean chambers beneath - Wine Bins, Sandstone Arch, Gash and the famous Banqueting Hall. We have recently uncovered Joseph’s Kitchen, complete with 4 large fireplaces & cooking Ranges. Williamson’s House is on Mason Street, Edge Hill L7 3EW. Extended visits to Joseph’s house are members only. All Visits can be arranged directly from our web site, e-mail or telephone. All visits must be booked in advance and are Free of charge, though we welcome donations

I found 'Friends of Williamsons Tunnels' whilst looking through TripAdvisor. I had not realised there are two organisations in the city offering tours, having visited the heritage centre a couple of years ago. Of the the two, the 'Friend's of Williamson Tunnels' experience was far superior.

My initial enquiry was made on their website. Lynn e-mailed me back promptly and gave me all the information I needed to book, plus detailed instructions on where to find them. The day before she messaged again to conform our booking.

There are two options: to see one or both sites. My party and I elected for the extended tour and I am so glad we did. Tom was our experienced guide. A gentle man who is obviously passionate about the Tunnels. We spent over two hours on site, were encouraged to ask questions and take photographs.

This tour was the highlight of my trip to Liverpool, and when I next return to the city I will be making my way back to the tunnels to see what further progress they have made.

A very good experience in a very hidden place in Liverpool. I emailed Lynn the day before and she was very quick to book us in one of the visit.
Our guide Tom was very passionate and full of knowledge. My kids loved it, especially looking at all the things they found during the clearing of the tunnels.
A well worth visit !

Interesting historical facts about Liverpool and perfect for any tunnel or cave enthusiast. Booking in advance required.

Fantastic day out made extremely interesting by our Guide Tom, who oozes enthusiasm and a great love and knowledge of Williamson’s tunnels. This tour is great for children and fit adults.

I found about Williamson's Tunnels by accident after looking for something to do with my little brother and mum. We had an amazing time walking around the underground tunnels, learning not only about Joseph Williamson but also a bit about the time when he was around. It's a great way to spend you time and it doesn't take that long to see everything, you won't even know how the time passed by.

Struggling to see why this isn't the #1 thing to do in Liverpool. My wife and I came for our anniversary and the tour by Lynn was definitely the highlight.

Honestly hope these guys get the permission they need to continue unfolding the story of Joseph williamson and exploring the tunnels.

My favourite thing about the trip had to be the enthusiasm and dedication the team have to exploring the tunnels.

Will definitely come again next time I'm in Liverpool and would strongly recommend anyone visits the city do the same!
