One way trip to Poole, passengers make their own way back (coach transport may be booked – see Shieldhall website). See the sights of Southampton Water, The Needles, Hengistbury Head and Poole Harbour, passing Brownsea Island and Sandbanks. Shieldhall will berth at Poole Quay, close to Poole Pottery, an approx. 15 min walk from Poole Railway Station.
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 Southampton Water and The Solent; pass close to the great ocean liners and container ships; walk the teak decks; relax in the Saloon with our 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!
TOP TIP FOR GROUPS: This is a one-way trip, and as such is popular with groups and tour operators. Drop-off at the Shieldhall in Southampton, with the Coach Driver picking up at Poole Quay later in the day. Changing scenery throughout the trip with informed commentary of the sights.
