  • "lovely time!"

    Trip was lovely... I travelled with my bf and son. We had a meal - wasn't the nicest but very filling...you were able to buy tea all through the night, I even got one free and my wee one loved the play area which was a 'turn of the head' away. Coming on and off the boat on the car had good guide and was quick. The cabins we taken up really quick but there were seating areas everywhere - the cinema area was dark, everywhere else was lit up with tvs everywhere. Lovely time

Liverpool Birkenhead Guide

The town of Birkenhead is located on the Wirral Peninsular, on the west bank of the River Mersey estuary, in the north west of England and is opposite the city of Liverpool. The sea has played an important part in the town's history through its port and its tradition in shipbuilding. The town's design, which was influenced by William Laird and his son John, is similar to that of Edinburgh New Town's with sections of Birkenhead laid out in a grid pattern. The grid was centred around Hamilton Square and was started in 1826 and has the most Grade I listed buildings surrounding it than any other square in England after Trafalgar Square in London. Interesting attractions in the town include the Grade I listed Town Hall, the Queensway Tunnel Main Entrance and the Woodside Ferry Terminal. Scenes from the movie Chariots of Fire were filmed at Woodside and were meant to be a representation of Dover in the 1920's.

Ferry services operating from the port depart to Dublin in Ireland, Belfast in Northern Ireland and across the Mersey Estuary to Liverpool.
