About

Due to lockdown restrictions the Manchester Ship Canal Cruises have been cancelled for the 2020 season. There will be no cruises running between April and October 2020. Please see the website for more information. 

Mersey Ferries’ fascinating Manchester Ship Canal Cruises will set sail along a new cruise route.

The round-trip cruise will sail from Liverpool and Wirral, travel along the captivating Manchester Ship Canal to the historic Latchford Locks and back, giving you the opportunity to experience a round-trip in the same day!

Relax as you travel under bridges mostly unchanged since they were built over 125 years ago and experience the rich legacy of Victorian architecture and engineering masterpieces like the Grade II listed Runcorn Rail Bridge and the Latchford High Level Bridge.

At Latchford Locks the ferry will turn and start the return journey back to Liverpool and Wirral. As you sail back along the canal, through Eastham Locks into the River Mersey, you will get a breath-taking view of the Mersey Estuary and Liverpool’s UNESCO World Heritage Waterfront in the distance. Enjoy the incredible panoramic views of the stunning coastline, Liverpool’s famous skyline and historic buildings.

To make your journey even more enjoyable, on board you’ll learn about the history of the canal and landmarks from our Blue Badge Guide’s live commentary. Our licensed bar and servery are also available on board, selling refreshments and snacks throughout the cruise.

Cruises last between 5 - 6 hours. You will depart from Liverpool or Wirral, sail to Latchford Locks and enjoy a return trip along the canal before being dropped at your original departure point.
