Event Website

Cruise down Southampton Water to the Solent and then head west and travel out to Hurst Castle, passing the New Forest Coast including Calshot, Lepe Country Park, the entrance to the Beaulieu River and the Exbury Estate. We will also see the north shore of the Isle of Wight. On your return pass the departing cruise ship Ventura(restrictions permitting) – always the chance 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; 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!
