Ferry across the Mersey, fun for kids or for adults as well?

I'm eccentric about this ferry ride but me and my gf don't feel like being the only adults on the ferry hehhe...is it any good?

Its a dernier cri, transportation always is.

It's laudatory if you are leaving Liverpool,not so good in the other direction!

Its a gush over, transportation always is.

Rule the World is a high flyer at Aintree

"On this day in April, Aintree is the centre of the sporting world for this is the place where history is made," she added, and if you hadn't guessed by now, Channel Four had started their Grand National coverage in style.

But fellow presenter, Nick Luck, had slightly more, err, luck, in that he was being ferried in by helicopter.

"Twelve months ago it was Many Clouds who flew highest," he said as we all suddenly went 'ahh, I see what you did there' and thanked our lucky stars that he hadn't been around when Red Rum had won and been rolled out in a barrel 12 months later.

Another star of yesteryear, or last year to be more precise, did join her though as AP McCoy (no sign of twin, Tony, probably held up on traffic) fresh from his retirement, returned.

"For the last two decades Sir Anthony McCoy would have been sitting in the briefing room but he's here on the roof with me," said Balding as we waited for Luck to sweep down and rescue them.

With the race itself now pushed back to early evening we were all in need of a bit of rescuing as the programme, like a horse's big, dangly tail, did go on a bit, but as we were told 600 million people will watch this, just a few more than the number of presenters in various guises that Channel Four seemed to have.

There were some good bits, McCoy dusting off his silks for a spin around the course, a lunchtime get-together with chums and Balding making a trip to see Jonjo O'Neill my personal favourites, quickly by-passing a chat with Paddy McGuinness, the highlight of which was Luck asking 'what do you likey today?'

He went for Holywell and it fell at the second fence so it wasn't to be a case of Take Me Out but Take That as Rule The World romped home for the superbly-named Mouse Morris.

"The horse took to it like a duck to water," explained Luck, who must have wondered how he would get this ever-increasing menagerie onto the chopper, but there was barely a squeak out of Mouse when pounced on by Balding.

About this book
This major best-selling memoir of a poverty-stricken childhood in Liverpool is one of the most harrowing but uplifting books you will ever read. When Helen Forrester’s father went bankrupt in 1930 she and her six siblings were forced into utmost poverty and slum surroundings in Depression-ridden Liverpool. The running of the household and the care of the younger children all fell on twelve-year-old Helen. With very little food or help from her feckless parents, Helen led a life of unrelenting drudgery and hardship. Writing about her experiences later in life, Helen Forrester shed light on an almost forgotten part of life in Britain. Written with good humour and a lack of self-pity, Forrester’s memoir of these grim days is as heart-warming as it is shocking.

About this book
A Mersey ferry was recorded in the Domesday Book, and for around a thousand years, they have plied between Birkenhead and Wallasey on the Wirral and Liverpool. The sail and man-powered craft gave way to steam ferries in 1815. In this book, Ian Collard tells the story of the Mersey ferries, concentrating on the steam and diesel powered eras from 1815 to the present day and including such famous ferries as Iris and Daffodil, which were involved in the Zeebrugge Raid of 1918. The Mersey ferries have been immortalized in song, and even today, with the various tunnels under the Mersey, the three survivors of today, Snowdrop, Royal Iris of the Mersey and Royal Daffodil, are still being used by locals and tourists alike. Using around 160 old and new images, he tells the story of the Ferries across the Mersey, showing a river that was once teeming with ships but is now much quieter.
