Currently Liverpool FC's ground is undergoing developments to expand its Main Stand, but fans can still enjoy a Centenary Stand Tour. The tour starts by the statue of Bill Shankly, at the Paisley Gates. Fans are allowed access to areas not seen by the general public, as they visit the Upper Centenary Stand for some great views of the stadium and the ongoing expansion. Also visited on the tour are the Executive Boxes, the Home Team Dressing Room and the Press Room. The tour ends at the famous Kop Stand. The Museum details the history of the club, and includes a new exhibition focussing on Steven Gerrard. The Museum also has a Hall of Fame, a fine collection of silverware, and much more. Please note: tour routes and availability are subject to change depending on the Main Stadium expansion work. The Stadium Viewing Tour does not include the press room, dressing rooms, This Is Anfield sign, tunnel and dug out. Unfortunately due to the building work, the ground is unable to offer full access of the route to wheelchair users. Please contact the ground to discuss accessibility plans during expansion work.

About the area
A metropolitan county on the River Mersey, with Liverpool as its administrative centre, Merseyside incorporates the towns of Bootle, Birkenhead, St Helena, Wallasey, and Southport. In the 19th century, Liverpool was England’s second greatest port, and the area has been affected by urban deprivation and unemployment.
When the port of Chester silted up in medieval times, Liverpool took up the slack. The first dock was built in 1715 and the port came to prominence with the slave trade. Following abolition, the port grew to a seven-mile stretch of docks, busy with cargoes of cotton, tobacco and sugar and the huge wave of emigration from Europe to the New World in the 19th and 20th centuries. In its turn, immigration brought an influx of people to Merseyside to join its expanding population, including many from Ireland fleeing the potato famines. In the second half of the 20th century, accessible air travel brought an end to the era of the ocean-going liners. Meanwhile, trade with Europe was picked up by the southeastern ports. Merseyside’s population dwindled, but it remains one of Britain’s most vibrant and interesting areas.
