Ferries have featured on the River Mersey for over 800 years. By the time Liverpool had been officially declared a town in 1207 ‘ferries’ were already an established sight.
Today’s now world-famous ferry service is run by the Mersey Ferries team. As well as taking hundreds of thousands of people out on the Mersey each year they also operate a range of exciting and informative Liverpool attractions along the riverside as well as trips along the magnificent Manchester Ship Canal. Hop aboard one of the daily River Explorer Cruises for stunning views, fascinating history and unlimited sea air.
An iconic Mersey Ferry will take you on a 50-minute journey that lets you explore the River Mersey's rich past...and present. You'll see the unrivalled and ever evolving UNESCO world heritage waterfront from the deck of this famous ferry.
