A Polish tall sailing ship will be arriving in London at the weekend, and they are letting the public on board for a look around.

The sailing ship “Dar Młodzieży” (The Gift of the Youth) is currently sailing around the world to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Poland regaining independence, and will be in London for three days.

She is due to arrive and moor in the Thames near to the Greenwich Pier, just after midnight at either 8.30am or 10am (to be confirmed closer to the time) on Sunday, 17 March.

London is the last stop of the “Independence Cruise” of the Dar Mlodziezy. During its 10-month journey, the ship visited the largest ports around the world, including Copenhagen, Bordeaux, Dakar, Cape Town, Jakarta, Singapore, Osaka and Los Angeles. Almost 1,000 young sailors took part in the expedition.

While in London, the ship will be open to visitors on the following days:

  • Sunday, 17 March, 13.00-18.00
  • Monday, 18 March, 14.00-17.00
  • Tuesday, 19 March, 16.00-18.00

Transport will be provided to the ship (boats will run every 20 minutes from the waterbus stop at King William Walk, Greenwich – just by the Cutty Sark in the town centre.

Dar Mlodziezy will end its world wide cruise back home in Gdynia on 28 March.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

    Hello, so I understand that tickets are not required to get on Dar Mlodziezy ship but are the tickets required for the small boat to take us to Dar Mlodziezy? If yes, how much are they please? Are the any age restrictions? Will I be allowed to be on a boat with 7 years old and 1 year old baby please? Thank you.

      If there were any restrictions or prices that I was aware of I would have put them in the article.

      I haven’t “hidden” anything for some reason, what I have is in the article, I have no other information to provide.
