About the Centre
The Williamson Tunnels Heritage Centre is the only tourist attraction in Liverpool dedicated to 19th Century philanthropist Joseph Williamson.
Opened in 2002 the Williamson Tunnels Heritage Centre has
welcomed over 100,000 visitors into the fascinating underground world created
beneath the streets of the Edge Hill district of Liverpool by Joseph Williamson,
a wealthy tobacco merchant who employed many hundreds of men in the construction
of a huge and elaborate underground labyrinth of tunnels, chambers and passageways.
The Williamson Tunnels Heritage Centre is owned and operated by the Joseph Williamson Society.(Registered Charity No: 1062091)
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 Williamson Tunnels Heritage Centre.
