Glasgow’s Unique Venue

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.
Make your event one to remember.

Atmospheric Surroundings Evoke Dramatic Images of a Past Life at Sea

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.
