An impressive tour of Liverpool’s waterfront and docks on a rare wide-beam canal boat, The Pride of Sefton.
With four tours per day, over two days, sailors will join the vessel at 11am, 12.30pm, 2pm or 3.30pm on Fri 28 or Sat 29 Oct. Each trip lasts between 45-60mins depending on the currents. The Pride of Sefton will be moored and accessible from the Royal Albert Dock. Take the ramp down to the jetty in front of Tate Liverpool to meet the crew. Each trip can only take a small number of people, so booking is essential.
Passengers start their tour in the Royal Albert Dock, sailing to Canning Dock, Salthouse Dock, Duke’s Dock, Wapping Dock, Queens Dock, Coburg Dock and Brunswick Dock before returning to the mooring. Lasting almost an hour, passengers will hear about the birth of the docks, their history and the people that made them, transforming a sleepy fishing village in to a City of Empire.
Children must be supervised by those who bring them.
It is worth noting that sailing can be affected by weather. In the event of bad weather we will do all we can to contact you let you know if the boat will sail.
Please note: the mooring location/meeting point for The Pride of Sefton has changed from the original listings. All bookers have been emailed with details (as of 25 Oct 2022).
These tours contribute to the Festival’s Family, Nook and Cranny Spaces and Heritage work strands. ❤️📍🔱
