Liverpool: 50-Minute Mersey River Cruise

2. Liverpool: 50-Minute Mersey River Cruise

From the Beatles performing on the Riverboat Shuffle cruises in the early 1960s to tales of smuggling, Mersey Ferries carry a cargo of memories. On this 50-minute cruise, you’ll sit back and enjoy the fascinating commentary and absorb the heritage. There is simply no better way to enjoy Liverpool’s iconic waterfront than from the deck of a legendary Mersey Ferry. Learn about the history of the Mersey Ferries and the Beatles, who performed 4 times on board the Royal Iris. The performances spanned 3 distinct periods in the development of the renowned group. The first ferry performance was on a cruise in August 1961, when the Beatles were still wearing leather. In August of the following year, they performed again, changing their image to a more clean-cut look, sporting suits, and ties. Their final ferry show was on 28 September 1962, featuring Ringo on drums. By this time they had recorded their first single, Love Me Do, at Abbey Road Studios. A week after the show, Love Me Do was released. While enjoying the surroundings you can listen to the commentary in English pointing out the sights along the river. Information sheets in other languages are provided. The tour departs on the hour from Liverpool Pier Head.

It was a great trip with a lot of information told on the way about the buildings you can see as you passed them. It was very windy so I would recommend taking something to keep you warm!

Just brilliant. Supposed to take 1.5 hours, but we made it last 2.5. A must for every Beatles fan, anyone who was around in the 60s, or just anyone who knows anything about pop music.

Enjoyed the cruise, the only thing I would change would be the volume of the narrative. It was far too loud, unpleasantly so.

This was a great way to learn more about The Beatles. It was both fun and informative, I’d definitely recommend.

Worth a visit. Amazing to see all of the beautiful buildings
