Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta 2018

Liverpool Waterfront & Wirral

Tel: +44 (0)151 233 2008

Tall Ships Regatta in Liverpool will be joined by Bordeaux Wine Festival



Everything will be shipshape and Liverpool fashion in 2018 as we welcome the wonderful Tall Ships back to the River Mersey.


The Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta will link a trio of vibrant port cities – Liverpool, Dublin and Bordeaux – with some nail-biting racing across the Irish Sea and Bay of Biscay. And it all begins here over the late May Bank Holiday weekend.

We can guarantee the magnificent masted ships will create a stunning sight as they make their way up river to start the hotly-contested Regatta from Liverpool’s world-famous, UNESCO World Heritage waterfront.

This is the fifth time Liverpool has hosted these evocative historic craft in the past three decades, and during Capital of Culture year an estimated million people packed the banks of the river to catch a glimpse of the parade of sail.

Between May 25-28, the city will be transformed in to three cultural festivals – Liverpool Festival in the city centre, Irish Festival at the Albert Dock and French Festival on the Pier Head, each with their own unique atmosphere and cultural experience.

Expect spectacular performances, unique entertainment, street animation and live music, as Liverpool waterfront is transformed.

So ready your sea legs and follow the fleet to Liverpool for four memorable and uplifting days of maritime magic.
