  • "Helpful staff and crew. "

    I am a disabled traveller and walk with a crutch. I informed Stenna line of this when booking and they gave me priority a boarding pass which meant that I was able to park on board the ship next to the lift / escalator which makes my journey much easier and less stressful. I also reserved a cabin for the overnight crossing and was initially allocated one up some stairs but passenger services were very helpful and swapped the cabin for a more accessible one that avoided the need to use stairs even though the ship was full that particular night.

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.
