Heritage Open Days

A number of properties in Southampton will be open free of charge over the weekend of Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th September, including Shieldhall. The Southampton and District Transport Heritage Trust will be laying on a service visiting many of the properties open, including St. Michael’s Church, The Old Bowling Green and the Dunkirk Little Ships Restoration Trust / Southampton Tram Project close to Shieldhall. Visit for full details of participating properties and opening times. Shieldhall will be open from 10am – 3pm for visits, but access will only be via the Heritage Bus, unless tickets have been purchased for the afternoon cruises in which case parking sheets are sent out to be used at the ABP Staff Car Park at Ocean Gate.

On Saturday between 4pm – 6pm, Shieldhall will sail out on a Docks Cruise, and with up to 6 children welcomed free of charge per accompanying adult (£20) it is the perfect chance to introduce families to life on the water!
