Cunard Connections Walking Tour
Enjoy a waterfront walk in the footsteps of a shipping giant.
When Samuel Cunard’s first paddle steamer pulled away from the Liverpool docks in 1840, little did he know that his name would be forever connected with the city.
This waterfront walk explores the enduring links between Cunard and Liverpool, and the stories of the resolute steamships, crews and passengers that braved wars, wrecks, waves and the wildest weather to cross the ‘ocean railway’.
The walk returns to the thrilling age of steam, meets illustrious passengers and ordinary travellers, and discovers how Cunard evolved into the luxury cruise liner company it is today.
From best-selling writers to runaway slaves, the Cunard Connections Walking Tour brings alive their incredible experiences with readings from memoirs, essays, letters and literature of the day.
Cunard Walking Tour tickets are priced at £12 (£10 priority booking)
