Liverpool Birkenhead Guide

Liverpool Birkenhead Ferry Port

The port of Birkenhead is located in the North West of England on the banks of the River Mersey opposite the city of Liverpool. Liverpool’s Birkenhead ferries depart from the ultra-modern Twelve Quays Terminal, off Tower Road and provide a gateway between England and Northern Ireland with a ferry service run by Stena Line. Birkenhead’s popular ferry connection with Belfast has been running for many years and has passed though the hands of numerous companies including Norse Merchant Ferries, Norfolkline, DFDS Seaways and now Stena Line. The Birkenhead crossing currently runs year round with a choice of day or night sailings. The twenty five million pound ferry terminal was opened in 2002 and boasts some top class facilities for those who pass through its doors, whether with tourist vehicles or commercial freight.
