    The trip was good. The cabin was fine and had all the facilities we expected. Our friends had a different cabin and they were more than satisfied. The trip passed very quickly.

  • "Relaxing Crossing"

    This was my fourth crossing of the Irish Sea between Belfast and Liverpool. All staff on board and at both ports were friendly, courteous and helpful. The crossing was very smooth and the ferry was very comfortable and spacious. I enjoyed breakfast and lunch on board and arrived at Liverpool feeling refreshed, ready for my drive home.

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.
