From the ferry across the Mersey and dockside attractions to museums and a new drive-in cinema, Liverpool has a good mix of activities for families
One of the best ways to share breathtaking views of the Liverpool skyline with your family is aboard a River Explorer Cruise on one of the famous Mersey Ferries. Over 600,000 visitors every year take to the seas to take in the Unesco world heritage skyline and to hear about Liverpool’s musical and maritime past, with tales of smuggling and famous passengers devised to entertain younger travellers. If the sun’s shining, you’ll find plenty of families stepping out on deck to feel the wind in their hair, but on colder days, hot chocolates below deck appeal to passengers of all ages.
