A famous 200ft tall ship has arrived to spend the winter at Liverpool’s Albert Dock.

Tall Ships Youth Trust marketing and operations director, Tim Law, said:

“Tall ships are very much a part of Liverpool’s heritage there is always such a buzz when we announce that the brig is coming back. Last year we were inundated with people coming on board and supporting the Trust. The Albert Dock is a lively location and the local community are always very welcoming. We look forward to opening our gangways and inviting the city on board.”
