You don't need a yellow submarine to enjoy a view of Liverpool from the water. Soak in the city's impressive historical architecture and rejuvenated Mersey River waterfront aboard the 50-minute River Explorer Cruise!

The River Explorer Cruise offers unbeatable views of Liverpool's famous skyline, with an informative commentary guide to give you the facts as you go.

You could say the Mersey River is where the tale of Liverpool is told. The waterfront itself is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, featuring Spaceport, U-boat Story, and The Beatles Story, located on the historical Albert Dock.

With an onboard café serving drinks and refreshments, and picnic areas both inside and out, this cool cruise is the perfect way to unwind in Liverpool.
