Mersey Ferries continues to follow government advice about essential travel and helping to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus and we are reviewing our services in light of this advice.

Update Tuesday 31 March: From Monday 6 April the morning and evening commuter services will be temporarily suspended due to a significant fall in demand but this will be monitored on a regular basis. If your journey is essential and you need to travel cross river please consider bus and rail options.

All River Explorer Cruises and weekend services have been cancelled and U-boat Story is closed.

We have also made the decision to cancel all Evening Cruises and Manchester Ship Canal Cruises in April and May 2020. If you have purchased a ticket for any of these cruises, we will be in touch shortly to arrange a refund. If you have booked a cruise using a gift voucher, we will refund you with a gift voucher.

If you have already bought a ticket for an Evening Cruise, Manchester Ship Canal Cruise or Liverpool Bay Cruise in June or beyond, we are currently planning for these cruises to take place. However, we are monitoring the situation closely and have suspended any further bookings in June.

We strongly advise people to follow the advice about non-essential travel and social distancing and more information is available online.

Customers who are key workers can visit www.merseytravel.gov.uk and rail and bus operator websites for the latest service information.

Day Tripper

Enjoy two of Liverpool’s iconic experiences in one combined ticket with 'Day Tripper'. This combination ticket offers a trip on the world-famous Mersey Ferries River Explorer Cruise and admission into the award-winning attraction, The Beatles Story. 
 
The daily River Explorer Cruise runs year-round and is a fantastic way for everyone to see Liverpool’s UNESCO World Heritage Waterfront. The cruise includes a full commentary and runs between three terminal locations: Liverpool’s Pier Head, plus Seacombe and Woodside on the Wirral. Total journey time is 50 minutes, with the option to break and re-start your journey at any terminal throughout the day for visits to riverside attractions.
 
The Beatles Story is the world's largest permanent exhibition purely devoted to the lives and times of The Beatles. Located in the Fab Four’s hometown of Liverpool on the stunning UNESCO World Heritage site at the Royal Albert Dock, The Beatles Story takes visitors on an atmospheric journey through the lives, culture and music of the world’s greatest band.
