Yarli Allison will be joined by Liverpool-based researcher Yvonne Foley to uncover and retell the stories which have been hidden or lost throughout parts of the city, specifically exploring old and new Chinatown, revisiting Liverpool’s rich history as a port city. Read more about Yvonne's research here.

Please note, the tour will cover approximately 30 minutes of walking around Chinatown. We recommend you wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately for the weather.

In addition to our in-person heritage tours, Yarli Allison will also be joined by researcher Lucienne Loh (University of Liverpool), to host a virtual walking tour of both the real and semi-imagined locations in film, In 1875 We Met At the Docks of Liverpool 於梨花埠遇上, 2021. Find out more and book your free place for the virtual tour here.
