Liverpool – Getting Around


Local buses serve all parts of Merseyside - you'll be asked for the correct fare when you board. Full details of all Merseytravel services including buses, ferries and trains, discount tickets and fares are available from the Merseytravel Information office in Queen Square (+44 (0) 151 236 7676).


Ferries across the Mersey (made famous by sixties singing legend Gerry Marsden) sail from Pier Head, Liverpool (in front of the Liver Building) to Birkenhead and Wallasey. Scenic river cruises with commentary and refreshments on board also depart all three piers.
