Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta

Friday 25 - Monday 28 May

Come aboard and join us for Wirral's Tall Ships festivities!

Some of the most beautiful vessels in the world will grace the River Mersey over the late May Bank Holiday weekend, as the Tall Ships make a triumphant return for the Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta from 25 - 28 May. The tall ships race will connect a trio of esteemed port cities – Liverpool, Dublin and Bordeaux.

There are plenty of activities for all your crew to enjoy on Saturday and Sunday whilst the ships are resting in port in Liverpool, before the spectacular Parade of Sail on Bank Holiday Monday, with Wirral offering a stunning vantage point to see these magnificant vessels.

Our waterfront will ring with the sounds of the sea as we celebrate our maritime connections – past, present and future. Click on each of the events below to find out more.
