Here are a few of our favourite events going on at Liverpool’s favourite water-front attraction:

Join a guide for a fascinating tour of the Edmund Gardner Pilot Ship, the largest object in National Museums Liverpool’s collections. During her working life of almost 30 years, the Edmund Gardner was essentially a base out in the Irish Sea for the Pilotage Service, providing accommodation for up to 32 pilots at a time. The pilots met all shipping approaching the Mersey and guided them into and out of the docks, to ensure their safety.
