The Tall Ship is one of Glasgow's most unique wedding venues, offering a riveting blend of 19th-century charm with modern comfort. First built in 1896 on the River Clyde, the Glenlee has embraced many changes in its 125-plus years. From a merchant sailing vessel to an icon of the Spanish Navy, this distinguished setting is a fitting way to celebrate your milestone send-off as you embark on your own exciting journey.

Facilities and Capacity

The Tall Ship offers you the opportunity to immerse your loved ones in a rare riverside experience that feels at once historic and elegant. Here, you can soak in the atmospheric surroundings in absolute privacy, relishing in the Glenlee's sense of adventure and discovery. Across the deck and down below, you can host up to 150 people for a wedding dinner and up to 200 for a reception. As the last remaining three-masted Clydebuilt ship still afloat in the UK, the Glenlee will be a most captivating backdrop for your wedding photos.

Services Offered

Booking your Scottish wedding reception at The Tall Ship gives you access to an exciting selection of caterers and drink packages. Depending on your budget and party size, you can indulge in welcome drinks on the deck and a wedding toast in the hull. For the ultimate finish, the Galatea package allows you to end your meal with a choice of Scottish whisky, an Italian limoncello, or a Spanish sherry—a fun way of celebrating the Glenlee's heritage. A dedicated events manager will be available throughout your booking to help you arrange the most suitable day according to your budget and vision.
