A bank holiday treat for our 6 year old! Fantastic morning had exploring the ship so refreshing to be able to actually 'touch', experience and smell what life would have been like on board! The actors made everything come to life and deserve the special mention! Well worth a visit and once paid you can return whenever you like for free for a year!!

Amazing reconstruction and restoration of an incredible piece of engineering for it's time. Informative look into the past. £14 well spent. The ship can be easily found by following signage on foot or take a ferry from the town. Catered for all ages and physical abilities.

Hi Paul,

Thank you for your message and your wonderful comments about your visit to the ship.
The rats you mention in your review are family pets who belong to the Ragged Victorian actors. They have a much larger cage behind the scenes where they spend much of the time with plenty of space to run around, eat, drink and sleep.

Kindest regards.
