Queen Elizabeth 2 In Forth Estuary

As part of her ‘Farewell to the British Isles' tour the QE2 will berth off Edinburgh/Fife coastline on Tuesday 7th October from 10.00am, leaving the same evening to sail down to Southampton before making her final voyage to New York.

She will then continue on to Dubai where she will be de-commissioned and become a floating hotel. The City of Edinburgh Council, Fife Council, Cunard (the vessel owners) and Forth Ports are working in partnership on a number of events at the coastline to bid a final farewell on her last visit to the Forth Estuary.
