River Mersey Cruise

Sail along the famous River Mersey on our wonderful 50-minute cruise during which you will see the iconic city of Liverpool from a unique perspective.

River Mersey Cruise

This cruise is one of the best ways to discover Liverpool. For 50 minutes you will sail along the River Mersey whilst hearing all about the fascinating history and musical legacy of this iconic city.

Learn a little more about the story of the Beatles and their performances on the River Mersey, known as "Riverboat Shuffles", which took place in the 60s. We will also reveal all about the secret history of smuggling which the river has been witness to. You will also see the city's two magnificent cathedrals from the water.

The cruise will take you past the Albert Dock waterfront, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There is a bar on board the boat, which means, if you want, you can have a drink while enjoying the ride (not included).

During the cruise, you will have access to a synchronized English-language audio recording which describes the most important monuments of the city so that you won´t miss anything.

The cruise finishes back at the original point of departure.

Timetable

The cruise operates every day of the week and departs every hour between 10 am and 4 pm from the Pier Head dock. From April to October on weekends and bank holidays there are boats until 6 pm.

Cruise + Tourist bus

If you want to explore the city in depth, one of the best options is to catch the open-top sightseeing bus, which includes an English language audioguide. You can hop on and off as many times as you want throughout the day, meaning that you can discover all the parts of the city in your own way.

The bus leaves every 30 minutes between 10 am and 3 pm from outside the ferry terminal at Pier Head, and operates every day of the week.

Cruise + Tourist bus + Access to the Cathedral tower

A visit to Liverpool would not be complete without visiting the iconic Anglican Cathedral. This ticket both grants you access to the Cathedral and allows you to climb up to the top of the tower via the lifts and stairs.

See Liverpool from an aerial view, and admire the city's beauty from the tallest Cathedral tower in the UK.
