Belfast Liverpool Birkenhead Ferry reviews

  • "My experience"

    The club lounge was very cold. Staff had to get my wife a blanket and a heater for lounge. I had to park my car on top deck which meant it was covered with dirt /salt at the end of journey. I had to pay to get it washed. Is there a reason that cars are parked on top deck? We then had to wait approx 30mins after ship had docked before we were allowed to disembark. The only positive thing i can say about the journey was the staff, they were brilliant and very helpful.

  • "Belfast/Liverpool Ferries"

    Generally we had a good experience. The two ships have been extensively refurbished since we last used this route & are much better. Catering was reasonably priced & the quality of the food matched this. The ships were punctual. The cabins were clean & comfortable. The only criticisms we had were the lack of clothes hangers & the lack of a waste bin on the return journey in our cabin which we reported to staff. For Information of other foot passengers we paid a taxi fare from Birkenhead to Liverpool Lime Street of £15 which included the Mersey Tunnel fee.

  • "belfast to birkenhead"

    almost excellent crossing room was excellent small but clean and warm lounge area very nice food brilliant even the food prices were fair, only negative on our trip was the European man who was parking the cars on number 6 deck he didnt make his instructions clear at all if he spoke in sentences instead of the odd random word then it might have been better and the fact that he was getting annoyed with us for not understanding him was a joke. other than that very good better than we expected.

  • "Great start to holiday."

    We crossed on the Saturday overnight sailing on an evening of gales and heavy rain. We expected an uncomfortable night. What an unexpectedly good experience our sailing proved to be! Comfortable bunks in a well equipped little cabin with en suite. The boat offered great facilities for travellers from meals, drinks to television areas. We will definitely travel to the mainland by Stenaline again. It was value for money and convenient.

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.
