14:30 - View all performance times

Steamship Shieldhall , 110 Berth

Box Office: 0844 357 2329

Cruise on Shieldhall as we explore the Southampton Docks, passing the Boat Show taking place on Mayflower Park, before steaming to The Solent. Hear tales about the history of the Docks and Southampton Water and pass the cruise ships Britannia, Aurora and Emerald Princess in berth and departing Southampton, always the cue to sound our whistle and play the ‘Shieldhall Organ’!

As part of your cruise, see the impressive engine room with its original steam engines at work and the bridge, with its traditional instruments and gleaming brasswork; admire the ship’s steam assisted steering gear (similar to that used on Titanic); talk to the Captain and our volunteer crew; listen to the informed commentary on the sights and sounds of the Southampton Docks and part of Southampton Water; walk the teak decks; relax in the Saloon with a wide range of refreshments including tea / coffee; real ale; a range of Titanic bottled beers; wine and hot and cold food, available on all trips.

Children will have fun with our interactive Shieldhall Log Book, collecting stickers from various stations on board!
