The Mersey Ferries

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. Until 31 December 2018 you can hop on board the country’s only Dazzle Ferry – Mersey Ferries ‘Snowdrop’ is covered in eye-catching motifs designed by Sir Peter Blake. There’s an exhibition on board too where you can learn more about the role of Dazzle Ships and the role that the Mersey Ferries played in World War One.

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.
