This is the first of three posts from a recent weekend trip to Liverpool. The visit was originally planned around a ghost hunt at the abandoned Newsham Park Hospital, but that was cancelled at the last minute leaving a free weekend with accommodation booked. So lots of tourist adventures were done, including an evening with Shiverpool…
Shiverpool run theatrical ghost tours around the city, a very entertaining way of learning the dark past of Liverpool and its people. No actual science or ghost hunting, just good clean and occasionally spooky story telling and fun.
The tour was focused on the Hope Street area and featured Lucy Carew, aka Chiller Black, and Samantha Hill as Chiller’s sister. One or more members of the Shiverpool crew lurked in the shadows from time to time too.
I’m delighted to say that Shiverpool liked the photos from the evening so much they’ve had a copy of them all, and even used them as part of their submission for the Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards!
I don’t want to give away too much about the tour, or spoil the surprises for anyone, other than to say it was really excellent and I’d definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Liverpool. And if you’re in Oxford, then look out for Bill Spectre who does a similarly excellent ghost tour around the town.
