Mersey Ferries Christmas Voucher

Unique and awe inspiring, give a gift with a difference this year – a gift voucher to travel on one of Britain’s grandest canals, the Manchester Ship Canal, with Mersey Ferries.

An award-winning experience, the Manchester Ship Canal Cruise gift voucher is the perfect Christmas present for those that love to take in the sights, offering a day out to remember.

A six-hour journey between Liverpool and Salford Quays, offers a relaxing day out for friends and family in the North West. Travelling 35-miles of the canal, cruisers can enjoy spectacular scenery and lively commentary along the way – telling the story of how this magnificent waterway shaped the city of Manchester and the North West of England. The cruise sails through historic locks and bridges, which have remained largely unchanged since their construction over 100 years ago, and takes passengers past some of the region’s most stunning architectural and natural sights.

On board, there is a bar selling light snacks and refreshments. Cruisers can choose the direction of travel – start at either Salford Quays or Liverpool. Once the canal cruise has finished, guests will be returned to their point of departure by coach transfer. What’s more, on most of the cruises, passengers have the opportunity to extend their day out and take in more sights with a short stopover; visit The Lowry, Imperial War Museum, or Lowry Outlet in Salford Quays; the U-boat Story at Woodside, with its real German WWII U-534 submarine; or Liverpool’s central attractions and Albert Dock.

If you know someone who would love to spend a day taking in the sights as their Christmas present, then the Mersey Ferries Manchester Ship Canal Cruise gift voucher is the prefect stocking filler. The gift vouchers are priced at £42 each and can be exchanged for a ticket on any scheduled cruise in 2017.
