General Information

To ensure an enjoyable visit we ask that ALL group visits book in advance.
Without booking in advance we cannot guarantee entry.
To make a group booking please contact our Learning and Access Officer on 0141 330 9077.
Groups are defined as nine visitors or more who want to visit in the same day.
Guided tours are also available.

Advantages of pre-booking your group visit

  • Free ‘meet and greet’ service with safety briefing (subject to availability).
  • Guaranteed entry to The Tall Ship on your arrival.
  • Que skip.
  • A free discovery pack/rat hunt worksheet for each visitor.
  • Free hot drink and entry for driver.

Why do we ask groups to book in advance?

Due to health and safety restrictions, The Tall Ship has a limited capacity of 200 people on board at any time. We ask groups to book in advance as we can reach full capacity during busy periods for example during the summer holidays, school term time and weekends.
Once we reach full capacity we operate by a ‘one-on-one-off’ policy. This means that groups can sometimes end up waiting a long time to gain entry to the Ship/ may be refused entry.
If your group is booked in advance we can guarantee your place on the Ship that day regardless of how busy it is with que skip and the other advantages listed above.
