Here is a quick look at some of the available trips that allow you to experience our wonderful city and its history.

 

 

The Famous Mersey Ferry

San Francisco has its cable cars, New York has its yellow cabs… and Liverpool has its world famous Mersey Ferries. An experience you’ll love starts with a River Explorer Cruise.

A River Explorer Cruise is a must do experience and the only way to see and enjoy Merseyside and Liverpool’s iconic waterfront and UNESCO world heritage site. Departing hourly, this experience sails between Pier Head, Liverpool and the Wirral peninsula and a journey can be selected to suit each and every day out; wonder at wildlife, absorb heritage, have an action packed experience or simply sit back and relax - the River Explorer Cruise allows you to do as much or as little as you desire.
