Board the historic vessel, HQS Wellington and discover Britain’s maritime history.
This majestic boat has a rich history, particularly as an integral part of the Second World War and notably contributing to Operation Dynamo, the evacuation of troops from Dunkirk. As the last remaining boat of its kind from that period, HQS Wellington has huge historical significance and is now home to an expansive maritime library.
There is now an extensive collection to peruse onboard including artefacts, ship models and even a selection of maritime instruments. You can explore all the boat’s unique areas including the Model Room, the Wheelhouse and the Forecastle, plus you can take a virtual tour of the major Hospital and Troop Ship exhibition that took place on the ship in 2015.
