Ferry Across the Mersey - Liverpool, Seacombe, New Brighton, Moreton

This is your chance to sail on the world famous Ferry Across the Mersey. We will meet at the Liverpool Pier Head Terminal, catch the ferry to Seacombe and then walk along the promenade to New Brighton with magnificent views of the River Mersey and the Liverpool skyline. Along the way there may be time to call at The Magazine, one of the oldest pubs on the Wirral with its building dating back to 1759 (www.the-magazine-hotel.co.uk).

On arrival at new Brighton we will turn westwards and walk along the Marine Promenade, past the marine lake and onto the coastal path. We will then head for the Leasowe Lighthouse  (optional climb to the top of the lighthouse) Finally, we make our way to Moreton station where we will catch a train back to Liverpool.

For those who want we can stay in Liverpool and go for a meal.

You will need to bring some money for the Ferry (£2.80) and the train from Moreton to Liverpool (about £3.50).

  • All are required to practice social distancing – staying 2m (not 1m) apart at all times, including the lunch stop.
  • Please join events within around one hour’s travel from your home, rather than travelling longer distances to get there.
  • Unfortunately, there won’t be any planned pub / café stops en route or at the end, and please don’t share sweets or snacks with others – we’re sorry!
  • Public transport use to the start point is discouraged, as this is a non-essential journey. No car sharing to the start point unfortunately either.
  • Please bring your own hand sanitising gel for your own use throughout the day. Use of face coverings is at your own choice.
  • Each person can only attend one OutdoorLads micro event a week. (Leaders to leave at least three days between events they lead.)
  • On walks, one person to hold open gates and allow everyone to walk through – so minimising surfaces that multiple people touch. 
  • Be aware that opportunities for toilet stops may be minimal if facilities are closed.
  • Please, please cancel at your earliest opportunity if you are unable to attend or are unwell, so that we can allow others to take up these valuable event spaces.
  • Much as it's difficult - no handshakes or hugs!
