The WELLINGTON has been closed to the public following the departure of the Honourable Company of Master Mariners (HCMM) in April 2023.  This allowed the Wellington Trust to undertake a period of intense maintenance and statutory compliance works.

The WELLINGTON is fully compliant with statutory regulations and has full P&I insurance (including public liability) and Hull & Machinery cover.

Furthermore, the Port of London Authority has confirmed that the Wellington Trust is complying with the Licence under which they permit WELLINGTON to remain on the Thames at her Temple Stairs berth.

With effect from Monday 2nd October, we shall enter the first phase of preparing to open fully to the public once again.

Events and Hospitality

New caterers have been appointed and are preparing for the second phase of opening, and to become fully operational.  We shall be sharing more details in the coming weeks.


Our education committee is busy working on reinstating our popular education programme, which will restart soon.  If schools and colleges would like to be updated on our progress with this, please contact

We look forward to welcoming you onboard soon!
