    One of the best looking explores we've ever been too, unfortunately we didn't know that access was gonna be so sketchy to say the least! And we really didn't have the balls to do a flying leap. Still sometimes these things don't work out, its normally gutting but with this one it was worth the trip just to see it and get some shots of the outside. We'll be back one day.



    Some history...

    The Tuxedo Princess (ex-TSS Caledonian Princess) and Tuxedo Royale (ex-TSS Dover) were two former car ferries used as permanently moored floating nightclubs in the United Kingdom from the 1980s to the 2000s. Both ships saw use on the River Tyne at different times, while the Princess also saw use on the River Clyde in Glasgow, and the Royale on the River Tees in Middlesbrough.

    In May 2011, the Tuxedo Royale started to sink into the River Tees due to vandalism by metal thieves

    In June 2014 businessman Terry Owens started a campaign to restore the vessel from a nearby dry dock, which would cost in the region of £250,000. The intention was to apply for lottery funding to finance the works.
