Baltic Triangle Tours, Liverpool operates small group cultural walking tours across urban regeneration hotspots in our fabulous city.
We asked owner and adopted scouser Seb to talk us through this exciting new walking tour covering the magnificent North Docks.
The tour starts at Bramley-Moore Dock, covering the Ten Streets area and calls in to several extraordinary locations that both locals and tourists could easily miss.
For any Liverpool businesses out there with customers and guests who are wondering what’s open now, or are looking for things to do outdoors – then send them my way.
What’s extra special about my tours is the unique relationships I have built with local businesses since I first began. And that’s what those who come on my tour love the most! Every stop along the way offers guests a chance to hear first-hand stories and interact with owners, staff and those local to the area. We pause to chat, browse, sip a tea/ coffee/ beer/ gin; we do off-the-beaten track in a very urban way. I started out with an aim to bring tourists into places they would easily miss, to show off the things I love and I’m passionate about – I think I’m just about achieving it!
The tours also cover history – mostly the human aspect but I add a bit of bricks and mortar too. The historical aspect usually focuses on the people who have shaped the area, what happened because of them, and when and why. For example, the story of Bramley-Moore himself is surprising and provides the new North Docks Tour story with a great link from the scientist Charles Darwin to the technology of building modern football stadia.
It’s this holistic approach of old and new that gives my tours a modern feel. Putting perspective into where we are standing; giving the cobbles and the concrete the full circle of then- to right now. It’s not just a rose-tinted ‘years ago this used to be’ it’s a ‘look at this now!’ type of thing that encapsulates the buzz of Liverpool.
As well as the small group tours I also run more bespoke corporate sessions that are tailored to suit client needs. Before the Covid-19 outbreak I was busy planning a private tour for an overseas client with 80+ guests; sadly I won’t be organising anything like this in the near future but I hope we can get back to something like that again eventually.
Stay safe out there!
