Monday, November 16, 2020

Seacombe ferry terminal is closing for major refurbishment work to replace the linkspan bridges and refurbish the landing stage. The mooring bollards will also be upgraded and new powered gangways will be installed. This important work will ensure that our iconic ferries can sail along the River Mersey for many years to come, helping passengers to cross the river quickly and see the best views of Liverpool’s famous skyline. The last services from Seacombe terminal will set sail on Friday 18 December 2020.

Services from Pier Head to Woodside

All ferry services from Monday 4 January 2021 will set sail from Pier Head Liverpool and call at Woodside ferry terminal, whilst Seacombe is closed. Our regular daily services will continue with our Commuter Service sailing from 07:20am- 09:50am each morning and 5pm- 6:50pm each evening.

Hourly cross river services will operate throughout the week from 10am - 4:30pm and will depart Pier Head on the hour and half past the hour from Woodside. Find out more about times and prices here.

U-boat Story and Woodside Ferry Village

Our popular visitor attraction U-boat Story will re-open in January 2021, so you can hop off the ferry and explore U-534’s rich history and try and solve the mystery about why the Captain of the vessel wouldn’t surrender - was the U-boat carrying Nazi gold, on a secret mystery or had the Captain gone rogue? Tickets for U-boat Story start at £5.50. Find out opening times and ticket prices here.

Woodside Ferry Village is currently closed due to national lockdown restrictions. Keep an eye on the latest from Woodside Ferry Village over on their website.
