Opened in May the RLB360 tours have already seen more than 30,000 people through the door and now it will add an extra attraction for visitors
Launched earlier this year the new tours of Liverpools Royal Liver Building – RLB360 – have proved a hit attracting more than 30,000 people since it started in May.
Now organisers are adding extra value to the tour, offering customers the opportunity to see the famous executive boardroom in the Grade I-listed building, which is currently undergoing a major revamp.
The boardroom has played host to the Royal Liver Friendly Society for over 100 years and maintains all of its original features, including an exquisite ceiling and rich wooden architecture. It is the first time the space has been opened up to the public.
RLB360 allows people to view a world-class digital projection show inside the historic clock-tower for the very first time. It also includes access to the tenth and fifteenth floors to enjoy spectacular 360° views of the Liverpool skyline.
The visitor-attraction also recently opened up for corporate events. It has played host to a number of big businesses including the BBC who have used the facility for major outside broadcasts.
Chris Devaney, operations manager at RLB360, said: “We’re thrilled to be extending the experience to give people the chance to see the amazing boardroom on special dates, it has been one of the most popular customer requests we have had since we opened.
“Along with visiting the boardroom there will be opportunity to see the original electronic clock chimes and other selected pieces from the Royal Liver Building archives not to mention learn all about the company to whom the building was home for 100 years, the Royal Liver Friendly Society.”
RLB360 was opened by Heritage Great Britain – the Liverpool-based name name behind some of the UK’s most well-known visitor attractions. The company operates attractions including The Needles: Landmark Attraction on the Isle of Wight and Snowdon Mountain Railway.
