Cheap Ferry to Liverpool Port

Liverpool’s vast port is one of the main ports in the UK and spans across both sides of the River Mersey in Liverpool and Birkenhead. Thirty million tonnes of freight get processed each year at the port, including a third of the freight moving between Ireland and the UK.

The Twelve Quays River Terminal in Birkenhead which has been recently constructed at a cost of 30 million pounds, provides a check-in hall, covered check-in areas for both freight vehicles and cars, cafeteria with lounge area, and a separate rest area for lorry drivers which includes showers.
