Highly recommended, I did it a couple of months ago. The tour guide we had was excellent aswell, friendly, knowledgeable and good sense of humour.  Donít think you can do it on match day.

Anyone been on the match day tour? Is it any good? I'm bringing my lad up in February and want to do a tour too for him. I don't know if match day would be better or the day after?

Would check with the club first but I think on match day some of the stuff youíd see on a non match day tour is closed off. Museum is open as thereís always loads hanging around there.

Are they doing them again then along with the museum tours?

Both were on my to do list 2yrs ago as part of my 60th birthday year of celebrations as well as being in the City when our league win was confirmed and for the Parade in May but everything got cancelled due to covid.

Maybe I need to start getting stuff booked again or is that tempting fate after last time 😂

I done the tour two weeks ago, highly recommended, first time ever at Anfield, the museum tour was included, if you buy your ticket early you can do the museum at your leisure prior to the stadium tour, enjoy

Does anyone know how long the tours take please?

I was going to combine doing one with needing to go into the city for the bank until Paul brought up what we do with the dogs. 

Obviously I don't want to leave them in the car too long but I could always go on my own and let Paul take them round Stanley Park 😁

I did the tour a few months back, just a word of warning to anyone going on it if it was the same as mine. We got to a green-screen photo set-up of the premier league trophy and a European cup on the concourse within the main stand. That league trophy was the replica that the club have, so don't make the mistake I made in thinking that if there was a Euro cup there then they must have a league trophy in the museum too - they don't, that's it, so if you want pics, take them then, or pay for one professionally done right there (you collect and pay at the end...in the museum, only if you like it) as you won't be able to go back to it. This fact wasn't pointed out to us on the tour so we all bypassed it.  :butt
The trophy should really be in the museum.

I've done the tour a couple of times now and think the club is definitely missing a bit of a trick with the lack of silverware on show given all we've won. I think we have five trophies aside from the six big ears (one league cup, one UEFA cup, one world club cup, one old league trophy and one super cup). I'd love it to be a bit more of a silver-fest  :lickin

Also, meant to ask: does anyone know why our most recent European cup is the same size as the real one? I thought they had to be a certain size difference to the original, like the others that are miles bigger?

Thought this the last time I went. If it was up to me I'd have replicas of every single trophy we've won, but we'd probably need a bigger museum then  ;D - I'd imagine that's relatively common for most clubs, though bare in mind most have won far less than us.

On the European Cups, I think it's a bit strange how the first 4 are that massive. Can't see why they aren't all the same size as I believe they once were before they last re-modelled it. Thought it was a bit jarring, to be honest. Seeing them all is very impressive but I couldn't help but thinking they could have displayed them a bit better. I know at AC Milan they have a room dedicated to their European Cups, would be nice if we had the same but similar to what I said above it's probably hard in limited space. It'd be lovely if they had to make space for a new addition in the next few days  8) ...

Yeah space is definitely something that would need yet more building work for a silver-fest to be accomodated, but the whole museum feels too small and not in keeping with LFC for me.
We do have a 'room' dedicated to the European cups now and the display is better than it used to be with the 2005 trophy on a plinth of its own. That set-up is nice now, nowt wrong with that bit, it's the rest that needs a re-jig.

Taking the family over for the Newcastle game and was thinking of doing the tour again. Was just wondering do they have the FA cup and League cup on display for a photo op ?

There wasn't an FA cup when I went in March, though that may have changed since, so maybe worth sending an email to ask what set-up they have now. We've had a league cup in the museum for years, so yeah you can get a photo next to that in its case, but it's not the same as the photo opportunities you can get with the premier league trophy and european cup with the green screen behind you. They've changed the photo ops a few times in recent years so check with the club what they're doing in this regard at the minute.

Personally, I'd like the club to do a showcasing of the trophies won more like they have at the training ground.

Couldn't find anything on the Offical website about them, they are offering photos with the PL and CL trophies, think they were about £25

I think for a single photo it was £15 but multiple ones up to £25.

But 77kop05, heed what I said above about them being on the tour route for the green screen photo op, and NOT in the museum.

I did the tour last week. They have the league cup on display in the museum but not the FA cup

You can get a photo with the Premier league and Champions league trophies if you do the stadium tour

It's £15 for 1, £20 for 2 and £25 for 3 (if you pay for the 3 you get a digital copy of the photos as well)

Interesting as they had the seperate photo opps for League Cup when we won it but they haven't done anything for the FA Cup

Did the tour at the end of August when in Liverpool on cricket tour, I did the old tour about 8 years ago so prior to the Main Stand being erected.

Personally I preferred the old tour to the new one as you had a local lad taking you round and talking to you about it giving stories about the old days and so on.

The modern one was much more impersonal, you pretty much went round your self with minimal interaction with the stadium staff and all the commentary was automated via headphones. Some of the elder members of the tour party struggled to keep up with the video and headphones.

You can't beat the human touch in my opinion

I got a gift of the VIP Anfield Experience for my 50th in September. Myself and the missus are going. We're going in March the day Liverpool are playing Bournemouth away. I can't fucking wait!! When I opened my present I nearly had an emotion. I was in Anfield once in 2006 but never did the tour. Did I tell you I can't can't friggin' wait?

Thatís disappointing to hear as it was not my experience at all.  Our guide a few months ago was very local, has been around the club for many years and had a great knowledge, sense of humour and lots of stories from the past 50 years.

Same as when I done the tour last year, guide was local and very good, took as much time as needed to see everything, couldnt have asked for a better one

Anyone done a matchday tour recently? Does it include a photo opportunity with the League/European Cup trophies?

Info on the site for normal tours mention it has this, but the matchday tour doesn't mention it.

Is the main difference just the changing rooms and press area on a matchday aren't included?

The answer to this is yes, it gives the option to add it at checkout.
