The Tall Ship at Riverside

The Tall Ship at Riverside Review

Built in 1896, this fine tall sailing ship now sits on the river Clyde immediately behind the Riverside Museum. The Glenlee once belonged to the Spanish Navy (under a different name), but carried cargo all over the world in her day. She returned to Glasgow and the river Clyde in 1993, and now forms part of the museum. You can wander throughout this surprisingly large cargo ship with or without an audioguide, peer into cabins and holds, and stand on the forecastle as you gaze down the river. Bus 100 from George Square brings you here, or you can walk from the Partick subway station in 10 minutes.
