Trip over the Mersey accompanied by the obligigatory Gerry and the PaceMakers song as you start on the journey! Round trip takes just under an hour. Definitely a thing to do in Liverpool

The Ferry was great and very informative, it's worth doing just to sing the song and say you've been on it. You can jump on and off at the stops to see the other attractions across the river or just stay on and enjoy.

It was a misty snowy cold damp 50 minute cruise round the Mersey - but unmissable. The view of Liverpool from the river is unforgettable. Dome it before and would do it again.

I would say you need to check with the ferry company and the Mersey authorities, but start with the ferry company they might be able to arrange everything if its possible. They all seem so helpful.
