This post is the first for my feature on activities to do in Wirral during the school summer holidays. I have decided to start with Mersey Ferries as it one of Olivia’s, and mine, favourite days out. I have always loved going on the ‘Ferry cross the Mersey‘ . It is such an iconic part of Liverpool and Wirral and I love that we live so close to it. Having recently met up with some people on my training programme from work, they were so excited to go on the ferry an experience they couldn’t go home without having!
These days Mersey Ferries is so much more than just the ferries taking people from Wirral over to Liverpool and vice versa although they do still play the infamous ‘Ferry cross the Mersey’ by Jerry and the Pacemakers at the end of the river cruises, each one without fail. Today you can take a trip on the ferry and visit one of their many attractions, you may of heard of Spaceport? or the Uboat story? Or what about the Beatles story? It really is a place to have a great day out.
Last summer Olivia and I got an offer to visit all the attractions for price of 1 and we had a lovely day on the ferry, picnic at the Pier Head, then back over to go to Spaceport. They had the Wallace and Gromit exhibition then and it was the first time I had actually visited Spaceport and we had so much fun it was one of Olivia’s favourite days out last year.
Now a day out like this isn’t going to be cheap but there is always special offers on. I have signed up to receive emails to keep up to date with all offers and special attractions/events (this is a good idea as many places off email discounts or advance booking offers) currently on their booking page a family ticket for River Explorer, U-Boat Story and Spaceport for 2 adults and up to 3 children is £43.00 but you can find more information on their booking page. Or you can visit their Facebook page or Twitter.
We will definitely be visiting over the summer especially as Spaceport has free craft days running during the summer holidays and as it is based in Seacombe Ferry Terminal we can also take advantage of Play Port and visit Cafe across the Mersey whilst the kids play! Visit their Things To Do page to find out all the things you can do on your visit.
