River Mersey Ferry Cruise:

Mersey Ferries operate a daily cruise boat service that takes in the sights and attractions of three key points along the River Mersey. Climb aboard at either Seacombe Ferry Terminal (Wirral), Woodside Ferry Terminal (Wirral), or Pier Head Ferry Terminal (Liverpool).

A full circuit of the route takes approximately 50 minutes, but with return tickets and hourly departures from all three terminals you'll have plenty of time to disembark and enjoy each riverside attraction.

Be sure to visit the Spaceport at Seacombe, the U-Boat Story at Birkenhead (see below), and the Beatles Story just down from Pier Head at the Albert Dock.

U-Boat Story:

Across the River Mersey at Birkenhead is where you will find the U-Boat Story. This popular and exciting museum takes visitors on a journey into the dangerous life of a WWII German submarine crew. The exhibition is centred around the salvaged remains of U-534, a vessel that was sunk by British aircraft after refusing to surrender at the end of the war. Glass viewing partitions give visitors direct insights into the submarine's interior, and extensive exhibitions showcase a huge variety of recovered artefacts.

  • Address: Woodside Ferry Terminal, Birkenhead CH41 6DU.
  • Opening Hours: 10:30-17:00.
