Have not been on this world famous ferry for many years. So pleased I made the effort. Worth every penny and you learn so much. Fantastic.

No visit to Liverpool can be complete without going on the Mersey Ferry! We opted for a combined ticket for the ferry and the City Sightseeing open top bus , at £25 for two people it was a bargain, see my separate review for the bus . We loved the ferry. Over 50 minutes you get to see Liverpool from... More

Visited here with my wife and parents. I lived 1/2 hour from here for 25 years but never went on the ferry.... What have I been doing??!! A great trip, friendly staff and clear information. A quick hop off at Pier Head (Liverpool side) and wander round the museums and docks makes it a great day out. Thanks very much.

This is a great way to ride the famous boat and get to know Liverpool. The idea that there is an attraction at each stop is clever too and means that you can turn the ferry into a whole day out. Unfortunately we had limited time so we just did the cruise and went straight back to Pier Head but... More

Ferry Cross The Mersey! All we needed was Gerry and the Pacemakers to sing to us! Very interesting cruise, lovely to see the Liver Building from the River Mersey. We sailed from Birkenhead to Liverpool and then back again later. Drinks available on the Ferry, seats inside and out. Highly recommend it.

This was a definite must for me on my first visit to Liverpool and I wasn't disappointed! On our trip out we had excellent live commentary all about the large ferry (If memory serves correct, I believe the Queen Victoria) which had docked. As well as the surrounding area. We got off to see the U-Boat which was very interesting.... More

Decided to go on the 50 minute ferry tour during our second day here in Liverpool, Well worth the money especially on a summers morning. A lot of history to explore throughout the tour of the Mersey river. We took the 11am sail which got back at 11:50am and we noticed that the queue for the next sail was about... More
