Visit one of four remaining U-boat's in the world and delve into the mysteries of U-534 at the U -boat Story at Woodside Ferry Terminal, Birkenhead.
With original film archive footage and engaging interactive displays, including a chance to crack the enigma code, you will witness all of the dramatic action in this unique exhibition.
At U-boat Story, you will be able to look into the U-boat, now cut into four sections with glass viewing partitions, view its amazing interior by controlling a series of internal cameras, and observe many well preserved artefacts. Conquering the re created conning tower is also a must for any visit!
For a special experience, come and take advantage of our daily guided tours at 2pm every day for an incredible insight into the life on board a submarine during wartime.
The U Boat Story is not only amazing but totally unique when it comes to tourism in this country. There are only a handful of these U Boats on show anywhere around the world, and I feel proud to say Britain is one of those rare places that have one on show.
Costing five million pounds not only is this seen by its owners as a huge tourist pull, but also they feel as if they have a part to play in the U Boats preservation. This preservation is clear to see upon a visit to the site, where you can now get up, close and personal with a vessel that would only be seen before in old war movies.- Top 100 Review

Nearby Eating Out
Miller & Carter
At Miller & Carter we know a thing or two about steak. In fact, we could say that we're one of the best steakhouses in Liverpool. But we'd rather leave that to your judgement.
This Venetian paradize is a haven for couples. Having taken its inspiration from one of Venice's most romantic venues, it is hard to tell that you are in fact in the middle of Liverpool's financial district. *
Fab 4 Yellow Submarine Hotel
A unique experience to stay on the yellow sub. This was originally built around the concept of the sub in the film THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER with Sean Connery.
Wow this is it the most fantastic apt boat in the world. It sleeps up to 9 with 3 bedrooms, crystal chandeliers, even the floor has been copied from the original 1st class
