All aboard the Mersey Ferry River Explorer Cruise! Enjoy a 50 minute cruise, take in the iconic views of Liverpool's waterfront and learn all about Liverpool and its musical, maritime past with expert guided commentary.
From the deck of this world famous ferry see the ever evolving waterfront, now considered a UNESCO World Heritage site. Included in your ticket is the U-boat Story, at the Woodside Ferry Terminal. Discover an amazing and unique insight into life on board a real German WW2 submarine. See inside the four sections of the U-boat and discover a selection of exciting artefacts including a rare German Enigma machine. 
The ferry itself was designed by Sir Peter Blake - the artist behind The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper’s album - and is far and away the best way to explore the city.
