Waverely - Garvel

Waverley is one of the world’s greatest historic ships. The last sea-going paddle steamer in the world, magnificently restored with towering funnels, timber decks and gleaming varnish and brass. You can see and hear the mighty steam engines as they propel the paddles that take Waverley majestically through the sea.

She arrived at Garvel Clyde in Greenock this afternoon for her annual check-up and spruce-up to get her ready for the busy summer season ahead.

She starts her season sailing amidst the stunning scenery of the Western Isles and then spends the summer exploring the West Coast of Scotland.

She then visits Liverpool & North Wales followed by the Bristol Channel before moving onto the South Coast of England in September and London and the Thames in October.
