Next to the Riverside Museum of
Transport, is the 245ft long Glenlee
sailing vessel, built in 1896, here on
the River Clyde.
Known now as the Tall Ship, she is a
great free attraction that allows you
to explore her living quarters, and
engine room. The lower decks also have
to be seen to be believed, as they run
from almost the bow to the stern, with
little supports to obstuct your view.
There is a cafe in the lower decks.

that circumnavigated the globe four
times, passing round the dangerous Cape
Horn 15 times. She was bought by the
Spanish navy in 1922, and operated as a
sail training vessel until 1969. She
was then operated as a training school,
until being laid up at Seville in

You can also take a Fast Boat Tour on
