All hands will be on deck, as the international fleet of Tall Ships makes a triumphant return to the Mersey over the late May Bank Holiday weekend. Our waterfront will ring with the sounds of the sea, as some of the world’s most beautiful sailing ships navigate their way up the river to begin the prestigious Regatta. The tall ships race will connect a trio of esteemed port cities – Liverpool, Dublin and Bordeaux. Come and watch them sail down the Mersey as they approach Liverpool docks on Friday 25th May and wave them off as they sail out on Monday 28th whilst enjoying a delicious Afternoon tea on your own private panoramic lounge looking out over the horizon.

Please note the times sailing will not be confirmed until nearer the time but you will have exclusive access to the Panoramic Lounge until 4pm each day.
