HMS Unicorn

HMS Unicorn


HMS Unicorn provides an impressive, atmospheric and extraordinarily memorable setting for that special event.  Unicorn was launched in 1824 as a 46 gun sailing frigate for the Royal Navy; she is now the sixth oldest ship in the world and Scotland’s only preserved warship.

Make your event special onboard HM Frigate Unicorn. Guests will love the experience of drinking, dining and dancing on board this venerable ‘wooden-wall’ and you can be certain that your event will remain distinct in their memories.

  • The GUN DECK provides a memorable entry to the ship.
  • The covered UPPER DECK is suitable for large events of all types.
  • The elegant CAPTAIN’S CABIN is ideal for more intimate gatherings.

By booking your event on board HMS Unicorn you not only help to preserve this magnificent survivor from the age of sail but you also guarantee your guests a truly unique occasion.
