  • The tall ship is well worth a look as parts are interactive for the kids to take part in such as scrubbing the deck if they would do at home. A cafe is available but we never tried .The kids loved the...  more »

  • Would probably leave a good review if we had actually been able to get on the ship. They closed early and we were refused despite there still being others on board. Made all the more irritating as had come to the riverside specifically to see the ship. I would also love to know who had the bright idea of only having one crew member at weekends which is obviously the time people normally have off and as such are able to visit museums and attractions. They said they were "having trouble with the pipes"
  • Great place to visit plenty to do for the kids children under 16 years of age are not allowed without a adult free entry there is a cafĂ© down stairs
  • Really enjoyed the Tall Ship, it's just behind the Riverside museum which is well worth a visit also. But for the ship, there's quite a bit to see, spot the rats game for the kids to look for (Fake wooden Rats) various other bits to keep them occupied, the fog horn was fun and there's a soft play on board, the soft play is a little warn but it gets a lot of use. They have a small cafe also, great for taking a break, the boat has wheelchair access and it's free to enter, but they do ask for donations and if you can give then it means they can maintain this better for visitors in the future. We really enjoyed it.
  • Amazing ship to explore! It's bigger than you think! There are 4 floors! With lots to do! The main deck is good to see and ring the bell! Mid deck has a cafe and different exhibitions. The lower decks have a classroom and a play area. - Soft play for under 3s. And a few climbing things for 4+. The sack lift we spent a good 30mins messing with!
  • Very interesting ship. Three levels with lots too investigate and nosey at. Available for private parties. Cafe is OK but nothing special. Kids small play area. Not for a day out but worth the nosey whilst at Riverside museum.
