The Mersey Adventure

Many people book accommodation in Liverpool to explore the water. It does have rather more than its fair share, with both the Mersey river and the Manchester Ship Canal to choose from. Both offer cruises and excursions – a fascinating way to explore the Wirral’s industrial and natural heritage.

Even if you aren’t a fan of the water, you can’t book into serviced apartments in Liverpool without taking a Ferry across the Mersey. No other river crossing has attracted so much attention – it even had a song written about it. As well as regular crossings to and from the Wirral Peninsula, the Mersey Ferry company (operating under Mersey Travel) offers the Big Mersey Adventure, River Explorer cruises, Manchester Ship Canal cruises and Special Cruises with live bands. If you regularly book luxury serviced apartments in Liverpool for business purposes, check out Mersey Ferry boat chartering – a much more original venue for a corporate function than the usual tired conference room.

The Mersey has been running a ferry service since the 12th century or earlier, and over the years has seen hundreds of vessels come and go. The current fleet dates from the 1960s, and it’s thrilling to think you can stand on the same hallowed decks the Beatles used. Most cities would have scrapped their fleet long before, replacing it with modern vessels.

Whether you are renting serviced apartments in Liverpool for business or pleasure, we at Serviced City Pads guarantee you’ll be crossing the Mersey again and again.
