Very pleasant trip on this ferry across the Mersey. There is a recorded commentary which is quite quiet and hard to hear whilst people are talking. Lovely views from the ferry, there are 2 stops during the trip.

Ferry across the Mersey complete with the song playing in the back ground and a running commentary. Really enjoyed it as did the kids. Good value to get the tickets to include the Liverpool bus too.

Well if you come to Liverpool it's just something you have to do. Cost £10 And the trip lasts about 45 minutes. Drinks and snacks are available on board. Tells you a little bit of the history of the river.

Took this ferry cruise. Lovely views back towards the city. Unfortunately couldn't really hear the commentary due to engine noise. I was on the Dazzle Ferry which was lovely.

During the afternoon / or late afternoon is the best for photographs. If you want to hop off & visit the space exhibition then go during the morning- as it will give you more time.
