Please pay by contactless if you can, don’t forget to plan ahead and leave extra time for your journey. Keep your distance from others, enjoy the fresh air and the incredible views of Liverpool’s famous skyline.
Face coverings* must be worn on the ferry and in the terminals at all times.
Our staff are working really hard to help passengers cross the river as quickly as possible, but please be patient as due to reduced capacities there could be a queue at the ferry terminals.
