The RLB360 experience is reopening after being closed for three months

Liverpool’s famous tourist attraction, RLB360, has announced plans to reopen.

The tour of the city’s iconic Royal Liver Building which includes a digital experience inside the historic clocktower, plans to reopen to the public on 4 July.

With its opening, there will be new social distancing measures, reduced guided tour numbers and additional sanitising facilities in place.

It is the first major tourist attraction in Liverpool to announce reopening plans and visitors can book their tours online here.

The world-renowned tour of the Royal Liver Building was a hit with visitors from across the globe until it closed its doors in March. It opened to the public for the first time in its one-hundred year history to extensive national and international media attention last year.

The RLB360 tour was due to celebrate its first birthday in April but plans for a celebration were put on hold as the pandemic forced the world into lockdown.

News of the tourist attraction’s reopening comes as a director of the attraction’s parent company, Heritage Great Britain, spoke about the impact the lockdown has had on the tourism industry.

He also issued a warning that the industry in Liverpool must ‘adapt to unique circumstances or fail’.

Peter Johnston-Treherne said: 

“The impact of the  Covid-19 pandemic has been devastating for the tourism industry. Liverpool relies so heavily on visitors to its tourism-based economy.

RLB360 was approaching its first year in business before we closed. The tour was incredibly popular with visitors from both the city region and around the world who wanted to see inside our most famous building. The pandemic has hit us and so many other attractions hard. It is possible that some won’t survive.

We are planning a safe reopening, in accordance with government guidelines, in early July. We have introduced new signage to advise of social distancing rules, we are limiting tour numbers and have introduced additional sanitising facilities. Public health must always come first but we need to reopen to survive. It is a case of adapting to unique circumstances or failing.

We are hopeful for the future and we are encouraging people to visit us, support all local attractions and to make RLB360 part of their first big day out.

The tour gives a fascinating insight into Liverpool history. People love it. Jamie Carragher has even visited and he is one of our biggest fans.”
