Interesting commentary. Stopped off at U-boat museum which was interesting (included in the price of ferry ticket). Combined ferry with bus tour. Good value for money.

Great way to experience Liverpool from the water. Stunning views of the Liverbirds and the Three Graces. Chance to get off and explore the opposite side of the river. Ferries every hour gave chance to make a real day of it and explore three locations for the price of one. Informative commentary, on board catering (including the legendary Scouse) plus... More

Nice little verry with some good information about the places you pass. There are three stops so you can go off the boat and go back on at a later stage.

We often use the Mersey Ferry from Birkenhead to Pier Head leaving the car which is free parking when using ferry. So by the time you have paid Tunnel toll and then car park charges in the city you are quids in. You also get a breath of fresh air ( Well Mersey river air !!) on the short journey... More

Was a last minute idea but did not disapoint. started off sitting on the top deck but wind was bitter. Lovely veiws of Liverpool skyline. U-boat attraction was included in the price of the ticket...this was a little disappointing. smaller than I thought it would be.
