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.

Bratislava bridges the gap between beautiful and barmy quite brilliantly

Some people collect stamps or dolls, others go for foreign coins or football programmes. I bag bridges. Or at least I enjoy looking at and crossing them.

Big, small, stone, brick, concrete or metal, they can be things of beauty and engineering marvels.

The magnificent Forth Rail Bridge in Scotland is my favourite. I’ve a soft spot for the one across the River Mersey at Runcorn, Cheshire (childhood memories); the Iron Bridge in Shropshire is a photogenic showstopper; Sydney, Golden Gate and Panama’s Americas are stunners, and I really must drive across the amazing Millau in the south of France some time.

But there is a new span vying for my attention – the bridge across the River Danube in Bratislava, the delightful, neat capital of the little central European nation of Slovakia.

The Novy Most (literally “new bridge” but formally the Slovak National Uprising Bridge) itself is a fairly unremarkable 1972 concrete suspension job.

But what makes it fabulously special is the fact that the designers – it was a project by the communist rulers who flattened Bratislava’s old Jewish quarter to build the approach roads – decided to plonk a UFO on top of the main tower. As you do.

It’s gloriously nuts and worth every cent of the €6.50 to get in the lift, head up the main support tower and on up a flight of steep stairs to the viewing platform.

The best bit is undoubtedly the climb up the Crown Tower for great views (beware, the steps are steep).

That’s followed by your descent to the bottom to see the 1,000-year-old crown of the old Hungarian monarchy. At one point, curiously, this was placed in Fort Knox.

If you have time, the ruins of Devin Castle are five miles out of town and feature a turret perched precariously on a rock. Admission is €2 and it’s served by buses and a ferry.

Bratislava is a winning, friendly little city with a handsome cathedral and national theatre too.

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.
