The world's most famous passenger liner, the QE2, has sailed into the River Mersey for the final time as part of her farewell tour of the UK.

The QE2 will be retired in November to be converted into a hotel in Dubai after more than 40 years in service.

The Cunard vessel arrived at the Princes Dock liner terminal in Liverpool at about 1130 BST.

Hundreds of well-wishers lined the banks of the River Mersey as she docked at the Pier Head.

The QE2 set off from Cork on Friday and stopped in Douglas Bay on the Isle of Man before setting sail for Liverpool.

There are about 1,800 passengers on board, many of whom will attend a celebratory farewell concert at the Anglican Cathedral at 1600 BST.

The choirs of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and the cathedral will sing at the event and the band of the Welsh Guards will perform.

Speakers include Simon Weston - who sailed to the Falklands on the QE2 - Dame Beryl Bainbridge and the Master of the QE2 on its final voyage, Captain Ian McNaught.

She is due to sail out of the docks at 2200 BST accompanied by a fireworks display.

After leaving Liverpool, the vessel will head to Greenock, Belfast and Edinburgh before arriving in her home port of Southampton.

Liverpool was for many years home to the headquarters of the Cunard Line.

Anybody going to watch the fireworks later?


Couple of pictures from today as she was coming in to dock for the last time in Liverpool.

I thought she looked quite small, but then I compared her to the fort & the lighthouse at New Brighton

Woodside, but might be packed.

Priory Wharf or Seacombe might be a bit quieter?

I might go down to Fisherman's Wharf.
