Venue type: Outdoor

HMS Trincomalee is the oldest British warship afloat built in Bombay in 1817!

It represents the pinnacle of the ship restorer's craft (with thanks also going to it's being built of Malabar Teak, which loves salt water!) and visitors can now savour the unique atmosphere and experience of life on board the Classic British Frigate!

It's extensively but sympathetically refurbished offering a rich and authentic experience hard to beat on your family's history trip. From the mess deck through the orlop to the gun deck and sail array (yes, we've heard that joke too) there's a brilliant exploration to be had with the kids in a richly historic atmosphere.

Maps and pre-bookable guided tours available. Guided tours of HMS Trincomalee during normal opening times can be accommodated with advanced booking. There are also a nice little range of seasonal special events to get in on during the year like the Xmas shindig, the wonderfully named Spoo-Quay Halloween Event and other special dates too, which you can check out on their events calendar through the link.
