The Nautical Museum is a fascinating Tardis like building. This tiny museum originates from the discovery of the 18th century armed yacht, the Peggy walled up in her boat cellar and now seen as being of 'extraordinary' maritime importance on the National Historic Ships Register.
Discover the Peggy and why she remained undisturbed for over 100 years and listen to the fascinating stories of Captain George Quayle.
Visit the Sailmakers' Loft and see the many tools of this intricate trade, plus see model boats, fishing equipment and fascinating photographs.
Take a seat in the Cabin Room built in the form of a naval warship of Nelson's day; encounter secret trap doors, panels, and architectural jokes, plus learn about the ancient vault next door!
