St James' Necropolis, Secret Garden Cemetery Tour Liverpool

1. St James' Necropolis, Secret Garden Cemetery Tour Liverpool

Begin your Journey outside Liverpool’s most famously haunted hostelry, The Philharmonic Pub Hope Street, surrounded by the former hospitals, asylums, workhouses, and children’s homes once served by the Necropolis. View the surrounding neighborhood that envelops the Dormitory of the Dead, St James’ Cemetery. Enter Liverpool’s Père Lachaise, City of the Dead, St James’ Secret Garden Cemetery. Listen to your guide masterfully weave ghostly tales and gruesome fables, medical accounts of the realities of the many Public Health crisis experienced by the city’s residents all swept up in the melancholy moods that pass through this great green lung. Absorb Liverpool’s awe-inspiring Anglican Cathedral “head and shoulders of the City” from the underbelly of this sea-soaked sanctuary. Experience the otherworldly soul of St. James’ Cemetery Gardens after dark, where nearly 58,000 of Liverpool’s great and good are entombed. Visit the venerable Chalybeate spring, where Liverpool’s only remaining natural spa waters flow from the rock bed of the town, believed to possess enlivening healing properties. Marvel at the impressive mausoleums and shrines including William Huskisson- the first victim to fall beneath the grinding might of a locomotive train- whose ghoulish presence still haunts his final resting place.
