Liverpool 2015, the fleet is coming!


It is the 175th anniversary of the Cunard Line, and May 2015 will see Cunard return to its spiritual home in Liverpool to celebrate. Cunard’s three Queens – Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria.

They will meet on the famous Liverpool waterfront in a spectacular one-off event that will draw tens of thousands of people to the banks of the Mersey.

Then on 4th July, Queen Mary 2 will return to the cruise terminal to recreate the voyage of the first Cunard ship, Britannia, from Liverpool to Boston and New York. We will be celebrating the anniversary – and Liverpool’s historic links with the US – with a mini-festival curated by Wayne Hemingway.

But it’s not just these two dates – between the two Cunard events, there will be a six-week programme of activity centred around the waterfront. This includes the ever-popular Mersey River Festival and the Rock and Roll Marathon.

Whether you’re looking to find out all about our sea-faring summer, book your berth at one of the city’s top hotels, or see what you can do whilst ashore, VisitLiverpool.com can navigate the way.
