The Tall Ship at Riverside - a unique venue for any special occasion that you and your guests will always remember.
The Tall Ship is Glasgow's most original venue for weddings and corporate entertaining. She was built in 1896 on the River Clyde when Glasgow was recognised as the Second City of the Empire and she is now the only Clydebuilt sailing ship still afloat in the UK.
The Tall Ship offers a unique combination of 19th century charm with modern facilities, perfect for weddings, conferences and banqueting. The atmospheric surroundings evoke dramatic images of a life at sea. Enjoy the unique riverside setting (flood lit in the evening ), before going below decks to dine or entertain.
The Tall Ship can accommodate up to 150 people for dining and up to 200 for a reception.
The space is very flexible and allows organisers to use imagination and flair to 'wow' their guests. Guests can browse the onboard exhibits or enjoy the riverside sunset from the main deck. Your guests are free to explore The Tall Ship while our catering company, En Croute, provide all the facilities and services needed to make your event a success.
