A 60-meter-high rotation over Liverpool, its waterfront and the River Mersey. Pick the right day (or evening) and there are some glorious views to be had over the city and out toward the Irish Sea from its pods.

You could see Scouseland at the top of wheel. Went up here many times with the kids who enjoyed them most. You could see both the cathedrals, River Mersey, Wirral and more. Price reasonable and worth it.

Very enjoyable - - a little windy but it was our choice. Capsules rock a bit when the wind is high but the views are very good and the commentary is informative.

A great way to spend some time when in Albert Dock. The views are tremendous and provide some excellent photographic opportunities. There is an audio information accompaniment for those who are new to the city and for ex-pats, loads of memories. Magic.
