A fleet of almost 30 Tall Ships will return to the docks of Liverpool over the May bank holiday weekend to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Liverpool’s year as the European City of Culture.

The ships are a stunning spectacle and there is a fantastic opportunity for visitors to step aboard many of the beautiful ships from across the world.

The festival will see the fleet travel across three port cities– Liverpool, Dublin and Bordeaux – as they race across the Irish Sea and Bay of Biscay.

Kettlewells will be running a day excursion to Liverpool to see the Tall Ships on Sunday 27th May, with places priced at £17.50 per person. For further booking information call 01777860360 or visit
