Liverpool Tall Ships & River Festival

Liverpool Tall Ships & River Festival

4* Crowne Plaza Hotel, Liverpool Tall Ships & International Mersey River Festival

Friday 25 May

We take a leisurely drive to Liverpool arriving at our hotel with time to relax before dinner. As one of the premier luxury hotels in Liverpool, Crowne Plaza - John Lennon Airport is full of historic character and built within the original Grade 2 Listed Art Deco Liverpool airport terminal. (The current airport being on a new site). There are even a number of vintage aircraft stationed on the landing canopy.


Saturday 26 May & Sunday 27 May

When the Tall Ships visited during a four-day jubilee celebrating Liverpool’s rich maritime history in 2008, the city’s docks welcomed more than one million visitors. Ten years later, Liverpool has the honour of hosting this spectacular fleet in an event that coincides with the International Mersey River Festival, a three day celebration of Liverpool’s wonderful and historic waterfront. The race will be one of a series of internationally significant events, which mark a decade since Liverpool was named “European Capital of Culture.”


Berthed in the Victorian splendour of the Albert Dock and alongside the award-winning Liverpool Cruise Terminal, the fleet will be close to the beating heart of the city. Here, a wealth of art, culture, architecture, music, and sport, as well as a thriving selection of bars, restaurants and shops are waiting for you to experience and explore.


We will take you into the city centre for 2 full days at leisure to enjoy all the city has to offer, including the wide range of museums, galleries, cathedrals and shops.  The World Museum is also proud to host the Terracotta Warriors for 2018.
