Three Queens on the Mersey 24 -26 May 2015
Travel Information from Merseytravel
Thousands of people are expected to flock to both sides of the River Mersey to share in the unique and majestic Three Queens event (24-26 May) to celebrate 175 years of the Cunard shipping line.
The three ships will only be together for a short time on Monday 25 May, but activities will take place across the weekend, meaning it will be an extremely busy three days for transport. This is something to consider if you’re planning on seeing the Three Queens, or planning to visit attractions in Liverpool.
If you’ve got tickets for the Magical Mystery Tour please check your departure point as some tours will leave from the Adelphi Hotel to avoid traffic problems.
An online transport information hub at www.merseytravel.gov.uk offers people options and advice, whether travelling from near or far. If you need further help in planning your journey, call Traveline on 0151 236 7676. Follow Merseytravel on Twitter, @Merseytravel #3queenstravel
