For something more al fresco, drop by and enjoy a hog roast, halloumi kebabs and drinks, which are available at the Waterfront terrace marquee situated by the Dazzle Ship from Saturday 23 to Tuesday 26 May, 10am-7pm.

If you want to take home a souvenir of the weekend, you can browse for some quirky Three Queens gifts in our museum shops – or beat the crowds and buy online!

The waterfront will be very busy on Monday 25 May when all three ships are in the Mersey. Please allow plenty of extra travelling time to get here and check the Merseytravel website for the latest public transport information.

Please also note that only the ground floor of the Museum of Liverpool will be open on Sunday 24 and Monday 25 May. Due to the pressure of numbers expected at the waterfront on these two days, we have had to limit access to the Museum for safety reasons.
