The Steam Packet Company has announced there will be no weekend sailings between the Isle of Man and Birkenhead this winter because of engineering works.

The ferry operator has been advised by Birkenhead Terminal officials that works need to be undertaken during weekends preventing Ben-my-Chree from berthing.

With no other suitable berths available in Merseyside, the fourteen timetabled weekend sailings to Birkenhead this year (from 9th November to 5th January) will now be rescheduled to Heysham, departing Douglas at 8am and returning from Heysham at 2:30pm. When the remainder of 2020 schedules are released (in late October) all winter weekend sailings will also be to and from Heysham at the usual timings.

Passengers affected by the change will be contacted regarding the new arrangements.
