Things to do:

How to turn a disused wing of a ferry terminal into a launch pad for exploring the outer limits of the universe? Merseytravel have achieved the unthinkable with Spaceport Wirral, a great fun interactive space attraction – complete with space ship simulator rides, planetarium – or Space Dome -moon rocks, interactive hands-on exhibits and cutting-edge audio visual experiences.

It’s all very child friendly – despite the quantum science – and a great ‘if wet’ experience. Jump off the Liverpool-Seacombe ferry, delve the mysteries of deep space, and be return in time for dinner. The attraction is also home to visiting exhibits such as Wallace and Grommit in Space, and Doctor Who.

Admission charged. Gift shop, cafe.
