We have spend some hours at Bucklers Hard. It's a nice place to walk around, the cottages and especially museum provide much information about the history of the village and shipbuilding in general. But there is an awful lot to read, and less to 'experience'. For children and especially teenagers it is missing the interactive elements and challenges they are used to.
The rivercruise is not recommended, alas. It was short, showed a lot of boats and yachts lying in the estuary but too little of the scenery and shore. The commentary by the captain was hard to follow, sounded like it was learned by heart and recited without real enthousiasm. It lacked humour and audience participation to captivate the passengers. *spoileralert*: The captains only joke was that he was happy we all 'stayed to the end'.
