Lord Nelson successfully docked in Bristol at midday on Wednesday 17 May, having set sail from Cardiff the previous Sunday. The journey was undertaken in pretty difficult conditions with far too much rain for the crews’ liking. That said, the experience for those on-board was unforgettable.
The guests were treated to a tour of the ship and also got to experience some of the innovation Barclays has developed to support accessibility. Thankfully, having rained steadily all day, the weather improved markedly for the two hour event and the feedback received on the night was superb. Many of the guests are now keen to try and get an opportunity to sail on Lord Nelson in the future.
