  • Lovely place to visit The ferry trip is a must Would recommend to everyone Lots of relaxing areas Very scenic 
  • Fantastic day out in the summer months. Lots of pop-up activities, restaurants and bars. Best approached from water on the Mersey Ferries river tour. 
  • The Pier head is an excellent tourist centre... some great shops for souvenirs and well worth the walk from Albert Dock if you have the energy! Don't miss it.

  • A nice terminal in the middle of the city. Because this terminal is in the heart of the city, it is very easy to walk off a ship and easily make it to where ever your destination maybe.
  • Helpful staff, great start to a cruise experience!
  • This is a wonderful place to stop as part of a cruise. If you don't fancy the main tourist attractions it is possible to go for a short walk to explore some of the north docks which are only now being regenerated and make up the world heritage site. We headed north along Priness Parade, then followed the historic dock wall up to Stanley Dock. Once there the luxurious Titanic hotel provides a great water side location for drinks and food. This is definitely a departure from the well worn routes but an adventure well worth taking.
  • It is a nice place, securing all types of large vessels including war
