"Join a local in some of Liverpool's atmospheric and traditional bars before taking a stroll through the lively night life areas"

Are you the type of person that enjoys experiencing the atmosphere of a city at night?

This tour is entirely flexible and can be adapted to your particular interests. We will contact you after booking this tour to help plan your Big Night Out.

Join a local for a couple of drinks in some of Liverpool’s atmospheric and traditional bars and pubs before taking a stroll through the lively night-life areas. Perhaps enjoy a meal at a restaurant in Liverpool’s China Town or if that’s not to your culinary taste, we can recommend some excellent Indian, Italian or Middle Eastern Restaurants.

Be entertained throughout the night with stories and tales told by your guide host before finishing your night in a local casino where you can gamble until dawn or just enjoy the atmosphere and have a little flutter on the roulette wheel.

When you book this tour we will contact you to help you plan your big night out around the things that interest you the most. Do you enjoy traditional cask ales in a quiet bar or prefer a more lively comedy show. There is also a number of theatre and music venues that can be included as part of your arranged itinerary. We can let you know what is available in Liverpool on the date of your visit and make the necessary arrangements and plans.

The booking fee includes your first drink which will be purchased by your guide. Any restaurant bills or additional bar bills are paid locally. Theatre or show tickets (where required) are purchased in advance of your visit – we will contact you about this.

Your guide host will spend three to four hours with you and then ensure you know how to find your way back to your accommodation safely. Alternatively, you can leave a deposit with your guide who will arrange a taxi to take you to your door if you’ve enjoyed the local bars a little too much.

(The deposit is refundable if not used and is entirely for your safety and peace of mind.)
