School and group visits to The Danny

Liverpool is lucky to be home to the last remaining operational steam tugboat and passenger tender in the UK. The Danny was originally built on Merseyside in 1903, and restored to peak condition earlier this year, following a 12-year campaign by volunteers to save her.

Now moored opposite the Merseyside Maritime Museum, she is a wonderful, living part of our maritime history, offering children the opportunity to experience both a working vessel and a luxurious saloon, styled upon the Art Deco lounges of the great liners.

The Danny team are very proud to have the support of the Port Academy and look forward to working with students, schools and communities, providing another experience for those engaged with the Academy.
