Mersey Ferries

Author: Visit Wirral

The world famous Mersey Ferries have more to offer than just a quick trip across the Mersey.

The River Explorer Cruise - Ferry 'cross the Mersey.

Take a 50-minute cruise on the River Mersey and see the spectacular view of the Liverpool waterfront.

The River Mersey has an incredibly rich and varied history, and the ferry service is itself more than 850 years old. Whilst on board you can enjoy a fascinating commentary detailing the interesting history of the ferry and the Mersey.

The River Explorer Cruise operates hourly from Pier Head (Liverpool), Seacombe and Woodside terminals. You can start your journey at any terminal, and a return ticket allows you to break your journey at any terminal and rejoin the cruise later in the day.

Spaceport

Housed in the ferry terminal building at Seacombe is Spaceport, a family attraction which takes visitors on an intergalactic journey through space. With several themed galleries, which all feature a large variety of interactive exhibits and audio-visual experiences, it's a great place to take kids.

Spaceport takes you on an inspirational journey through space as you walk through six themed galleries, all of which feature a large variety of interactive hands-on exhibitions and audio-visual experiences.

Spaceport is suitable for everyone, although explanations and subject matter is specifically aimed at visitors aged 7 and older.

Manchester Ship Canal Cruise

Mersey Ferries also operates a Manchester Ship Canal Cruise, which is a truly memorable journey along the 35-mile stretch of canal. Including a lively commentary, revealing insight into the facts, history and drama of one of Britain's major waterways.

The six-hour cruise departs from both Seacombe and Pier Head (Liverpool) and from Salford Quays on selected dates from April to October. The refurbished vessels provide excellent facilities including a licensed bar and servery selling refreshments and snacks throughout the cruise.

U-Boat Story
