From medieval beginnings as a planned town in 1207, the great sea port of Liverpool rose to become the proud ‘second city of Empire’.

The city’s maritime legacy brought people to Liverpool from all over the world, with its earliest trade links were between Liverpool and Indo-China. Visit the new International Slavery Museum, which examines the transatlantic slave trade and addresses issues such as freedom, identity, human rights, racial discrimination and cultural changes.

School students can follow the slavery history trail around Liverpool’s streets to get a feeling for the effects of slavery on the city. The slavery museum shares its premises with the Merseyside Maritime Museum at Liverpool’s Albert Dock.

The Maritime Museum’s Story of Merchant Ships and Seafarers incorporates the Battle of the Atlantic. There is a temporary gallery with a changing programme which details different aspects of maritime history. You can also visit the Beatles Museum, which will transport you into the life, times, culture and music of the Beatles.

Suggested Itineraries

All tours can be tailor-made to suit your needs. Some groups have specific sites that they wish to visit including graves, where they may wish to lay a wreath. Others like to combine a history tour with some leisure time, such as a day visit to Bruges, a visit to Bellewaerde Theme Park outside Ypres or add on a visit to Disneyland® Paris.
