The Tall Ship: SV Glenlee is a major visitor attraction in Glasgow and has welcomed over half a million visitors since opening in 1999.

She was built in 1896 and worked as a cargo ship for over 20 years, circumnavigating the globe four times. The Tall Ship: SV Glenlee is now the only remaining Clyde-built sailing vessel afloat in the UK and is an icon of Glasgow's ship building heritage.

The Tall Ship officially became an accredited museum in 2008 and she is recognised as part of the Core Collection of historic vessels in the UK, offering an exciting programme of family eventseducation projects, exhibitions and tours. Visit the Captain’s Cabin, the children’s play area, engine room and on-board café and gift shop!
