Planning Your Liverpool Visit

Getting Around

With Liverpool John Lennon Airport on the edge of the city, it’s easy to have a flying visit. But once you’re there, the city has plenty of public transport, whether it is by road, rail or river. For any attractions along the waterfront, hop onto a Mersey Ferries service for something different.

What people are saying about Liverpool

Lovely evening with friends on the Mersey

Having read the good and bad feedback, and watching the weather forecast, I was worrying that the evening would turn out terribly. It’s something different to do and many on board went in larger groups for birthday celebrations. Seeing Liverpool and Wallasey from the river and cruising right out towards the turbines was lovely. The guitarist singer was good, taking requests and we danced in a very small area - dancing with strangers- I don’t usually dance! We had a fab evening and made it great. I would say that we were on the same deck as the singer and don’t know how great below deck felt through a speaker. I did hear that they danced too. I think the ferry could invest in a better sound system. A good night with a difference, especially to celebrate with friends.

A brilliant experience liked the tour, museum and meeting the legends.

I would recommend anyone who goes up there to visit the stadium yourself, it’s very big, colour which provides a lot of history behind the scenes on how the stadium was once owned by another club, how the old stand got destroyed and how of Anfield today. My favourite moment was meeting John Aldurige the legend star for the team many goals, loads of appearances and funny story’s and questions.

An opportunity to see the famous sites from a different perspective

The cruise made one feel part of the 800-year history of river vessels crossing the Mersey. To have had the opportunity to alight at Woodbridge and ride a retro tram to Wirral transport museum was a pleasant surprise. I would recommend the cruise to anyone coming to Liverpool.

Great immersion in the life of the Beatles

Enjoyed it all but at times struggled to juggle the audio tour with taking everything else in. Was most impressed with the Cavern Club reconstruction. Was least impressed with the “light touch” given to John Lennon’s murder.
