Balmoral is on the move

Join us down at Bristol Harbourside Wednesday 15th May, 2019 to witness the MV Balmoral roar into life! Bristol council needs us to clear Princes Wharf for their seasonal activities and Harbour Festival, so the vessel will sail down the Floating Harbour to berth at Mardyke Wharf, Hotwell Road.

Lying opposite the SS Great Britain, Balmoral’s quayside neighbours will be charity-run ship Pride of Bristol and Bristol’s popular floating bar Grain Barge. Be sure to look out for upcoming events and activities on board Balmoral at her summer home.

If you would be interested in recording this event, we invite filmmakers, certified drone operators and photographers alike to work with MV Balmoral Fund and help record the move from the quayside. If you are interested in partnering with the Charity, please contact to help to cover this event.

Balmoral will sail from M-Shed at 13:00 under Captain Bill Payne.

It is essential that no members of the public are aboard the Balmoral, for the duration of the relocation.
