By joining the Friends of the WELLINGTON, you are supporting our important
work to preserve this wonderful vessel today and for future generations.

We work tirelessly on this never-ending task and your support allows us to
continue her preservation and protect this 90-year-old ship against the
ravages of time and tide.

This unique and historic vessel serves as a platform to promote study and
education through the Wellington Trust’s successful schools programme and
our lectures, exhibitions and other onboard and online events.

  • Our aim is the continued restoration and maintenance to support the ship.
  • Our mission is to educate and celebrate the history and traditions of the Royal Navy and the British Merchant Navy.

Our ambition is to welcome you onboard to enjoy our legacy, soak up the atmosphere, network with like-minded people, and help us to build a sustainable future for this much-loved heritage vessel.
