Mersey Ferries has announced a new cruise product for 2020 following a successful trial in 2019. Due to high demand and excellent customer feedback, Mersey Ferries has scheduled fourteen Liverpool Bay Cruises from June to August.
The unique sightseeing cruise into Liverpool offers panoramic views of the river, sailing past Royal Seaforth Docks, Fort Perch Rock at New Brighton and along the Crosby Channel towards Blundellsands and Formby. Passengers can also learn more about the history and geography of the River Mersey and Liverpool Bay with expert commentary and a Blue Badge Guide.
The sightseeing cruise will also give groups the chance to see Anthony Gormley’s spectacular Another Place art installation at Crosby from the river. Another Place consists of 100 cast-iron, life-size figures spread out along three kilometres of the foreshore, stretching almost one kilometre out to the sea.
On the return journey back into Liverpool from the mouth of the river and the Irish Sea, the ferry will follow the journey of many cruise liners and ships, past and present – allowing groups to experience that special feeling of sailing into Liverpool.
Mersey Ferries also has 2020 sailing dates for its Manchester Ship Canal Cruise with special rates available for groups. The full-day cruise takes in the spectacular scenery of the canal and passengers will learn how the canal’s construction shaped the city of Manchester and the North West of England.
