Mersey Games was established in 2015, providing fun outdoor activities for a variety of occasions in the vibrant city of Liverpool. We received the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for 3 years in a row including 2019, and have been voted one of Liverpool’s Best Activities for Stags, Hens, Birthdays and Corporate Parties.
Our amazing and unique activity packages provide the perfect experience to get your party started!
