Land and water tour bus launches this spring

A NEW visitor attraction will launch in Liverpool this spring, seeing a land and water bus tour embark on the city.

Splash Tours Liverpool will give passengers the chance to see and experience the sights, sounds and culture of the city in the comfort of a new, purpose-built amphibious vehicle.

Running from Spring 2024, the 60-minute tour will take adventurers on a tour beginning at Royal Albert Dock Liverpool and taking in landmarks such as the Royal Liver Building, Liverpool Cathedral, Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral, and St George’s Hall, before returning to the dock with a splash, showcasing the sights of Royal Albert Dock, Salthouse Dock, Canning Dock and Wapping Dock.

Splash Tours Liverpool is operated by the Lumley family, headed up by father Graham Lumley, his son Ed and daughter Amelia, who have run a similar operation in Windsor successfully since 2013. 

The vehicle to be used in Liverpool is purpose-built from scratch and is the result of seven years of development and innovation, adopting the latest in technology and compliant with all safety laws.

Co-founder of Splash Tours Liverpool, Ed Lumley, said: “We cannot wait to launch Splash Tours in one of the world’s most exhilarating and dynamic cities, allowing visitors to experience Liverpool from two very different perspectives – from its fabled streets, which tell a story or two, to its iconic and world-famous waterfront.

“Be among the first to experience this groundbreaking new tour, and let our team enlighten you with insights into Liverpool’s rich history, architecture and the cultural significance of the landmarks along the route; it’s a tour like no other!”

Sean Morrison, estate manager at Royal Albert Dock, said: “It’s wonderful to add Splash Tours Liverpool to the growing list of vibrant attractions available at the dock. 

“In a city steeped with history, we’re delighted to be part of a unique experience that allows visitors to immerse themselves in Liverpool and provides an exciting opportunity to see the iconic waterfront like never before.” 

The company is welcoming interest from local skippers and tour guides to join the team for its launch. Interested applicants can email:
