The Liverpool skyline has always been stunning with the Liver Building, Cunard Building and other great architecture but for many years the Pier Head was a noisy dusty expanse filled with diesel fumes from the bus station positioned there. The transformation is a triumph. The bus station has now gone and in its place is a pleasant open expanse from which one can enjoy uninterrupted views of The Mersey and watch the passengers embark for the IOM Steam Packet. Admittedly one might be mown down by a passing skateboarder but this is a small price to pay! Very impressive from every angle!

I grew up in Liverpool and was born between the Cathedrals, so true Scouser! Now live near London, Surrey and over the years have seen how the Pier Head has reclaimed its' grandeur and retains its' history. There is now a lovely walkway/promenade and plenty of museums, as well as the three Graces - lovely hotels and bars, this World Heritage Site is just not to be missed!

Very nice facility. Seen the Elvis exhibit, went on the Ferry 'cross the Mersey, bought souvenirs. Was very happy with all that we did here. Nice part of a great waterfront!

I opted for the River Explorer ticket which turned out to be a mistake for me. The ferry ride itself was largely smooth and highly informative through the voice over history of the pier, ferry and neighbouring locations and their contributions to British power in the 19th and early 20th Centuries. There were also some stunning views of the river line. I recommend you spend a bit more and opt for the larger explorer packages which include the space port and U Boat tour for extra diversity to your trip. All the info is available on the Mersey Ferries website which I recommend you should check before travelling.

We went to the Elvis exhibition and beatles 4D/gallery. Very good but would have like more music to listen to, especially the king! Didn't go on ferry, considered £25 to £45 too expensive for family of 4!
