Hire The Tall Ship

Berthed on the River Clyde outside the iconic Riverside Museum, The Tall Ship is Glasgow’s most original venue for special events, conferences and social occasions.
Built in 1896 in Port Glasgow, she is now the only Clydebuilt sailing ship afloat in the United Kingdom.

Lovingly restored over the course of six years to her original 19th century splendour, The Tall Ship is steeped in history and atmosphere.
Originally a cargo ship, this resilient, historic vessel has sailed completely around the world four times, surviving many treacherous storms and braving the notorious Cape Horn fifteen times.

Guests are welcome to explore every nook and cranny of the ship. Browse onboard exhibits, enjoy the riverside sunset from the main deck or even try their hand at scrubbing the deck!

All proceeds from event hire are reinvested back into the ship to ensure it is maintained and enjoyed by future generations to come. The Tall Ship offers a unique combination of 19th century charm alongside modern facilities, perfect for hosting your special event.

Organisers can use imagination and flair to personalise the versatile space to suit their needs and impress guests. The Tall Ship hosts a variety of events ranging from drinks receptions, weddings, corporate functions, lectures, training days, graduation ceremonies, fashion shows, comedy nights, children’s birthday parties and much more.

The ship is fully accessible to guests with limited mobility by use of our onboard lift. Contact us directly on 0141 357 3699 or email to discuss your options or to arrange a no obligation visit to the ship.
