On 19th September 2022, the Dutch sailing ship “Stad Amsterdam” was moored at George Stairs, off Shad Thames which is adjacent to Tower Bridge in London.
“Stad Amsterdam” – “City of Amsterdam” – is a three masted clipper sailing ship 76 metres in length which was built in 2000 to take up to 28 cruise passengers at a time, in 14 cabins, across the world. Whilst not a replica, the ship is based on the mid-19th century frigate “Amsterdam”.
