The Tall Ship Glenlee is currently


There is no requirement to book to visit The Tall Ship Glenlee

We look forward to seeing you back on board.

See below for our opening hours (On Thursdays we now open at 11 a.m.)

The team at The Tall Ship have worked very hard to make the Ship safe for the visiting public. The café, shop and much else besides has been re-organised. There is a one way circuit to help with social distancing. Sadly at this time we do not feel it is safe to open certain areas including: the engine space, and the cargo hold.  For more information please see our COVID-19 Page

The café is open and new menu is available

Thank you for your support. Please contact us if you require additional information
