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.
