Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta

Tall Ships

Tall Ships Viewing Cruise

A magnificent parade of sail will draw hundreds of thousands of visitors to Liverpool's World Heritage waterfront in 2018.

The Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta links Liverpool, Dublin and Bordeaux with hotly-contested racing across the Irish Sea and Bay of Biscay. And it all starts here on the River Mersey over the late May Bank Holiday weekend!

In addition to the ships themselves, the city will be transformed in to three cultural festivals - Liverpool in the city centre, the Irish Festival at the Albert Dock and the French Festival on the Pier Head, which will feature the prestigious Bordeaux Wine Festival.

Mersey Ferries' River Explorer Cruise timetable will be operating on Friday 25th, Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th May. Advanced bookings are available for these dates. Book here.

Special Viewing Cruise information for the parade of sail on Monday 28th May is still to be confirmed. Sing up to our newsletter and be the first to be informed about our special cruise details.
