Ferry across the Mersey
, Jul 2019
It was a lovely trip, the space port was interesting as was the uboat. A enjoyable few hours. Would recommend it.
Lovely staff and a great way to spend a few hours in Liverpool. Great for families or just adults. We went to see the U-boat in Birkenhead as part of our river cruise and it was fantastic! Definitely recommend!
Fabulous experience to share with my visiting South African friend, on an extremely bracing 2nd January - the Hurricane wind that had been battering the Coastline for days! We sailed graciously up and down the Mersey, great commentary covering past, present and future ventures in this beautiful part of the world, detailing the architecture along the way. Lovely warm ship, clean, spotless restroom, good hot drinks and fresh sandwiches. Staff delightful. Excellent value for money. Would highly recommend. David,Gilli and Pat.xxx
Was a little disappointed, but at least can say we've been on the Ferry, cross the Mersey! You can get off and see other sights and board again, which would make it more interesting. The weather was awful, unfortunately and could see nothing but grey and rain.
