Departing from the Pier Head, next to the famous Liver Building on the riverfront, the company’s ferries sail across the water to Birkenhead and Seacombe on the Wirral Peninsula. The fleet’s three boats are called Snowdrop, Royal Daffodil and Royal Iris of the Mersey.
Mersey Ferry services include cross-river commuter transport, 50-minute river explorer cruises, and trips along the Manchester Ship Canal to Salford Quays in Manchester. There are also special cruises throughout the year, including bird-watching sailings.
Along with Gerry and the Pacemakers, many other artists have recorded ‘Ferry Cross the Mersey’, one of Liverpool’s most popular anthems, including Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Burton Cummings, Pat Metheny and Sir Paul McCartney, as part of a fundraising release in 1989.
Me and my friend went on this tour of Liverpool, although we are local we learnt facts about Liverpool we didn't know. The commentary was very nformative. Our driver was friendly and helpful, witty but professional, he helped make the tour a great experience.
It was so moving to see where my Grandfather arrived into England from Ireland and so interesting to find out about so much of this area, with such fabulous views Thank you
Great value for $$. The tour guide was fun and informative. Suggestion to anyone interested, ride the full tour and on the 2nd round began your personal journey to sites interested. Great time!
