With more than a million passengers every year, the Mersey Ferries are an important tourist attraction as well as an institution of Liverpool’s legacy in transportation. Departing hourly throughout the day, the ferries offer a relaxing short cruise around the River Mersey, stopping at Birkenhead and Liverpool’s Pier Head dock. With views of the entire city and its river, a short voyage on the Mersey Ferries continues to impress those riding.
Given its modern status as a major tourist attraction, the service makes use of the Gerry & The Pacemakers 1965 hit Ferry Cross The Mersey. The boats themselves are kept in top order, with the old fashioned metal entrance guards still in use as they were decades ago. Those riding the waves are able to enjoy the peace and relaxation of a cruise, with local families frequently receiving discounts during the school holidays.
