Brocklebank's volunteer crew are offering visitors the chance to come on board and see behind the scenes on this fascinating ship, including the engine room, wheel house and mess room.

Brocklebank was a once familiar site on the Mersey escorting vessels in and out of the river. Its claim to fame was once leading Royal Yacht Britannia into Liverpool.

Please note that the ship has uneven surfaces, steep stairways and low steps, meaning it is not fully accessible and unable to accommodate wheelchair users, pushchairs or prams. Please wear appropriate sensible footwear for a safe and enjoyable visit.

In wet weather tours may have to be cancelled because the decks become too slippery.

This event is part of our Mersey River Festival event series.
