Join Shiverpool as you embark on a unique journey that unveils the mysteries of the afterlife in this alternative tour of Liverpool.

Your guide will lead you along Hope Street, drawing you closer to the imposing Anglican Cathedral and the haunting depths of St James' Cemetery Gardens, the final resting place of nearly 58,000 souls.

From ghoulish creatures to historic splendour, The Liverpool Secret Garden Cemetery Tour is a captivating Gothic odyssey. Let Shiverpool's expert storytelling and award-winning guiding skills transport you into a world where spooky spirits and enthralling narratives intertwine under the moonlit sky. There's truly nothing else like it!
