Free heritage walks round Liverpool

It looks like it’s going to be a cracking weekend, perfect for exploring the city and maybe even finding out a bit more about those buildings which you see all the time and have often wondered about.

The good news if you fancy a walk and a bit of culture is that it’s International World Heritage Day on Sunday. This is a day that is celebrated in all the World Heritage Sites across the world, including Liverpool. Our friends at Liverpool City Council have organised a series of free themed walks over the weekend.

One which caught my eye was the ‘Triangular trade’ walk on Sunday, which includes a look at the city’s institutions that profited from the transatlantic slave trade – a theme that is explored in the International Slavery Museum. As you probably know though, Liverpool’s World Heritage Site includes all our city centre venues – the Walker Art Gallery, World Museum, the National Conservation Centre, Merseyside Maritime Museum as well as the International Slavery Museum, so if you are in the area over the weekend then do pop in, no matter what walk you’re doing.

Full details of all the themed walks and how to book your place are on the Liverpool World Heritage website.
