Make your way to Pier Head on the River Mersey 15 minutes before the cruise time of your choice, and step aboard your sightseeing boat to begin your tour. Cruise out onto the waves and enjoy sweeping views over Liverpool’s UNESCO–listed waterfront.

Gaze out over sites of interest including the Royal Liver Building from your vantage point on the water, and gain insight into Liverpool’s maritime and musical heritage from the on-board commentary. Your cruise ticket also includes entry to the U-boat Story, a German U-boat in which Liverpool’s World War II history comes to life.

Back at Pier Head, take a seat aboard your hop-on hop-off bus and hit top attractions such as Albert Dock, the Cavern Club—where the Beatles used to play—and the Walker Art Gallery, with live on-board commentary. Busses depart every 30 minutes, and your 24-hour pass allows you the freedom to alight and explore on foot at your leisure.

Disembark at Liverpool Anglican Cathedral—one of the stops on your bus tour—and take the lifts and stairs to the top of the tower for panoramic city views. You’re then free to hop back aboard your bus to attractions including Cains Brewery and Chinatown.

Just been on a tour bus around Liverpool City centre with a mine of information tour guide Chris. I am a scouser born and bred but didn't know half the things that I learnt on an hour on this bus with Chris. Thank you Chris.
