Mersey Ferries

The Mersey Ferries Dazzle Ferry


Step aboard a Mersey Ferry to see Liverpool’s stunning waterfront at its very best. The decks of the Mersey Ferry offer the best way to see the city’s world-famous skyline. Our River Explorer Cruise takes you on a 50 minute trip where you’ll be captivated by Liverpool’s fascinating history as the world heritage UNESCO waterfront unfolds before you.
Until December 2018 you can hop on board the Dazzle Ferry ‘Snowdrop’. Created by Sir Peter Blake, eye-catching motifs cover the boats exterior. Explore the on board exhibition panels and learn more about the role of Dazzle Ships in the country’s wartime history – check our website for Dazzle Ferry sailing dates. Aboard our other ferry ‘Royal Iris of the Mersey’, spot famous Liverpool landmarks along the riverside using our on board interpretation panels. The commentary played on both ferries explains the iconic sights before you.
With all the fresh air you’re sure to work up an appetite so enjoy a picnic aboard in our indoor or outdoor seating areas. There’s a café on both ferries too which serve hot and cold drinks and refreshments.
Make a day of it and hop off at Seacombe and Woodside Ferry Terminals before returning to Pier Head. Learn more about space and science at Spaceport in Seacombe and see what life was like aboard a real German WWII submarine at U-boat Story in Woodside. Entry to U-boat Story is also FREE when buying a Mersey Ferries River Explorer Cruise ticket.
