Lerwick, UK

Lerwick, the capital of the Shetland Islands, hosts the Tall Ships fleet for the third time in 2023. Home to a third of the islands’ population, the town will welcome the Tall Ships fleet from Wednesday 26-Saturday 29 July…

The historic town boasts over 300 hundred years of rich history alongside a modern perspective and regularly attracts ships from around the world to its natural harbour. Lerwick still maintains a strong maritime feel alongside wonderfully atmospheric streets and the excellent Shetland Museum, which provides cultural insights for visitors from far and wide.

Entertainment won’t be confined to the event area with lots to see and do around the town’s art and cultural spaces, picturesque landscapes, famed historical buildings and sites as well as museums and much more.
