Edge Centrics


The Williamson Tunnels

Under Liverpools Edge Hill is a mysterious underground kingdom of winding tunnels and caverns built in the 1820s and 1830s by local philanthropist Joseph Williamson. You can take a 40 minute guided tour through a reopened section of the maze of tunnels, and learn about Williamsons motives for the  construction of  the tunnels.


The exhibition is ideally suited for visitors interested in Art, Eccentricity and the Williamson Tunnels. A diverse number of contemporary visual art responses to the theme of Liverpools eccentric character, are sited in the underground labyrinth of tunnels created by The Mole of Edge Hill. Enjoy and view the artwork both outside and inside the labyrinth, whilst experiencing its history during the 40 minute guided tours in hard hats.
