Good 50 minute trip across the Mersey River to New Brighton and Wallasey. Made better for us by rough crossing of the river. Helpful crew.

Thoroughly enjoyed the ferry trip, narration was very informative & made us think if we ever come back we'd use this method to visit both Birkenhead & Wallasey, given the information imparted about various things in both locations. The couple of lines of the Gerry...More

This trip just has to be done if you visit Liverpool. Great views of the Liverpool skyline from the ferry. The brightest coloured ferry I've ever seen with friendly staff. The ferry makes two stops en route. The first stop is the opportunity to visit...More

When sightseeing in Liverpool going on the Ferry cross the Mersey is something you just must do and even though it was chucking it down and rough we did it as it was our only opportunity to do so. I must say that I thought...More

Hi Lesley We're glad that you have been able to cross a trip on the Mersey Ferry off your list but sorry that we weren't able to improve the weather for you. We call it "brisk and bracing". There are some spots on board where...More

The ferry across the Mersey is an icon made more famous by Gerry & the Pacemakers. The ferry has become rather more than a way of crossing the estuary. The ferries leave the Liverpool George Dock on the hour, more frequently at busy times. They...More

During the afternoon / or late afternoon is the best for photographs. If you want to hop off & visit the space exhibition then go during the morning- as it will give you more time.
