First time in Liverpool and I think this was one of the best bits. Very windy on the tour but sunny. Great views and interesting history of Liverpool, only wish they had played the song in full, brought a smile to everyones face. Would recommend.

If you go to Liverpool you must do this trip. Not expensive, very informative and well worth the effort

We wanted to visit the U Boat museum and decided to combine it with a ferry tour round the harbour. The ferry tour takes around 50mins and there's an interesting commentary which continues after leaving each of the three landing places, preceded by the obligatory Gerry and the Pacemakers song. The U boat experience at Woodside Pier is an interesting... More

We were staying close to Liverpool so decided to have a trip on the Ferry, as we departed they played just a little of Gerry & The Pacemakers record and then that was it we would have like to have heard the whole of the record as it was very fitting with us sailing across the mersey but a loud...

Hadn't been on the Ferry for over 30years so decided to relive past glories. The terminal is now an ultra modern building, housing a restaurant,cafe and The Beatles and Elvis memorabilia. The young lady at the check in was very pleasant and courteous and everything boded well for a pleasant experience. It was a windy and day and the Mersey... More

I travelled to Liverpool on 14/08/2014 for a day out. The day out included a trip on the ferry, we opted for the River Explorer cruise, as this was recommended to us by the booking staff as being the best value. The price was expensive (£8.50 for a return trip). The ferry stopped at two other terminals. I thought the... More

The first time I rode on the Mersey Ferry, in 1968, was to go from the Birkenhead hotel I was staying across to see Liverpool playing at Anfield. It was iconic then, and essential for the thousands and thousands that used it every day. Almost 50 years later I rode the Ferry Across the Mersey not because I had to... More

I was lucky to be offered a free trip on the ferry as part of a Liverpool experience blog I was writing. I loved it! I used to be a regular on the ferry as a kid, albeit travelling the wrong way! I lived on the Wirral and Liverpool was "the Big Smoke" to me a a child. Boarding the... More

Great way to get to Liverpool from the Wirral /Birkenhead and Chester and a short walk from the Albert Dock and the city centre ...well worth the pennies !
