Mersey Ferries

Mersey Ferry trips are a popular choice for schools and groups visiting Liverpool. 

They offer fun and interactive learning for children backed up by support and resources for teachers, as well as free leader places.

The Mersey Ferry 'Snowdrop' is the only operating Dazzle Ship in the UK. Esteemed British pop-artist Sir Peter Blake has created the design as part of the country’s World War One Commemorations. Not only can your group see Liverpool’s waterfront - a UNESCO World Heritage Site - but they’ll also be taking a journey on a commemorative moving artwork. The daily River Explorer Cruise sails on the hour from the Pier Head which offers the best way to see the Dazzle Ferry.

There’s informative commentary onboard too with historic facts offering your group an informal and interesting way to learn more about the river Mersey, Liverpool and Wirral. Groups can start their journey from any one of three terminals, with return tickets allowing you to break the journey and rejoin the cruise later in the day.
