Williamson Tunnels


The Williamson Tunnels Heritage Centre provides an insight into the fascinating underground world created by Joseph Williamson in the early 19th Century. Take a guided tour through a section of the network of tunnels and view exhibitions which depict the life and times of one of Liverpool’s most eccentric characters.

The Williamson Tunnels Heritage Centre is owned and operated by the Joseph Williamson Society.

The Joseph Williamson Society is a registered charity which receives no public funding, therefore, the Society relies entirely on visitor income and donations to maintain and develop the Heritage Centre. If you would like to help the Society in its work please come and visit us or consider making a donation – it’s easy and secure with Paypal – just click the button.

The Williamson Tunnels Heritage Centre is open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
