BRING THE FAMILY FOR A GREAT TRIP OUT
WHAT’S ON BOARD
Our "South Asian Seafarers" exhibition, telling the story of the seamen who played such an important role in opening up the trade routes to and from the Indian Subcontinent and in both World Wars in the last century. Learn about their roles at sea, how they often worked in difficult conditions, and over 400 years contributed to the success of the British shipping industry.
Steer the ship in our augmented reality interactive experience for all the family in the Wheelhouse, where you stay in the ‘real world’ but with digital enhancement, feel part of what you see in front of you. Respond to the Captain’s commands and play your part in a successful convoy expedition.
Step inside the reconstructed Engine Room. Through the wonders of digital technology you can experience the sights and sounds of Wellington’s Engine Room during her active service in World War Two. See how the engines worked and step in virtually and take a selfie!
The former warship, HQS Wellington, has a treasure trove of paintings, ships models and artefacts on board for visitors to see when wandering around the ship on Sundays and Mondays. Open from Sunday, 17th April until Monday, 17th October.
