Me and my girlfriend had our first trip aboard Shieldhall last Friday, was a fantastic day, very friendly helpfull crew, it's brilliant that you get to go everywhere on the ship, will deffinitely be going out on her again
One of the South of England’s top attractions, well worth a visit. We were lucking enough to see the Bournemouth Airshow from the Shieldhall and were not disappointed. We were buzzed by the Red Arrows, a Chinnock, a Spitfire and lots more besides.
