On the Mersey Ferry from Woodside, Wirral to Liverpool
The Mersey Ferry operates on the River Mersey between Liverpool on one side, and Birkenhead (Woodside) and Wallasey (Seacombe) on the Wirral Peninsula. Ferries have crossed the Mersey since at least the 12th century, and continue to be popular for both local people and visitors.
The Beatles were filmed on board signing autographs and meeting fans for the BBC documentary, “The Mersey Sound.” The ferry was crossing the Mersey from Liverpool’s Pier Head to Wallasey on the Wirral.
The Ferry was made famous by the film Ferry Cross The Mersey, which starred Gerry And The Pacemakers.They also sang the eponymous title track which rode the crest of Mersey Beat.
A trip on the Mersey ferry should be on the bucket list of every Beatles fan, and all visitors to Liverpool.
