FERRY CROSS THE MERSEY
The famous ferry 'cross the Mersey runs between Liverpool's Pier Head, Birkenhead (Woodside) and Wallasey (Seacombe). The company also offers cruises - eg up the Manchester Ship Canal and other excursions. In 2014, one of the ferries was painted in 'razzle-dazzle' style, designed by Sir Peter Blake, to mark the centenary of the First World War.
There has been a ferry across the Mersey since the 11th century, at least. These days, passengers include commuters as well as tourists.
