Walker Art Gallery Tours

Walker Art Gallery
Take time out from the bustling city streets with a visit to the Walker Art Gallery, home to a diverse collection of artwork that spans eight centuries. Peruse masterpieces by artists, such as Monet, Rembrandt, and David Hockney, and enjoy an experience in the Big Art for Little Artists gallery, a hands-on space designed for young children.
 
The Basics
Noted for its neoclassical facade and entrance sculptures, the Walker Art Gallery is a popular stop on cycling tours that provide an overview of the city. For those who want a closer look at the rich interior, flexible hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus tours allow the opportunity to explore at your own pace. Visitors can also opt to combine a visit with a cruise along the Mersey, or a journey to the Liverpool Cathedral’s bell tower.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Featuring one of the largest collections in England, the gallery is a must-visit for art aficionados.
  • The gallery is popular with all age ranges, with a space specifically curated for those under 8. It also offers pram storage and a breastfeeding-friendly atmosphere.
  • For those with limited time, take advantage of the combined tours to see the gallery, along with other top city attractions.
  • The gallery is wheelchair accessible and an autism-friendly space. It offers accessible toilets and large-print guides/menus.
 
How to Get There
The Walker Art Gallery is situated centrally, just a few minutes’ walk north of Lime Street Station, and northeast of Queen Square bus station, on William Brown Street. Due to traffic congestion and expensive parking in the city center, visitors traveling by road often opt for a tour that includes a convenient hop-on hop-off service.
 
When to Get There
The gallery opens daily year-round, except Christmas and New Year bank holidays. Morning is the optimal time for a tranquil stroll through the collection, before the lunchtime crowds arrive. Weekends in the city center are often lively, while midweek brings a quieter vibe.
 
Discover the Cultural Quarter
Walker Art Gallery is situated on William Brown Street, protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its uniquely high concentration of public, listed buildings. Gain further insight into the city’s culture with a visit to neighboring landmarks, including St. John’s Gardens, St. George’s Hall, and the Liverpool Empire Theatre.
Address: William Brown Street, Liverpool L3 8EL, England

2-Hour Guided Walk Beatles & World Heritage

star-3
Using a local tour guide on a safe guided walking tour in the fresh air will let you explore the pedestrianised area in the docks and the heart of the city. You will learn and see far more than if you attempted to visit on your own and your local Liverpool Tour Guide will help you to plan the rest of your visit. I am a Blue Badge Tour Guide and with a few other guides we have been operating the Liverpool Beatles Walk since 2014 and we are UKinbound Members of the year and very proud of what we do. We aim to showcase the city in a fun and informative way and in this world of Covid our tours are in small groups and avoid all the busiest places. I also have a private guided Fab6 Beatles tour in a luxury licensed car to Penny lane etc for 6-guests. I will also help you to safely plan the rest of your visit. This really is the best way to start your first visit to Liverpool and I very much look forward to seeing you.
