New group packages for Steamship Shieldhall for 2019 season
Shieldhall has partnered Sea City Museum, Solent Sky and Hollycombe Steam in the Country to offer full day itineraries in and around the city, all culminating in an afternoon cruise. These packages are designed for groups of 10 or more.
Special group packages are available with a Titanic, Spitfire and Mayflower theme. ‘In The Footsteps of Titanic’ includes a visit to Southampton’s SeaCity Museum with its Titanic Gallery, a guided walk around Southampton’s Titanic Quarter and Titanic Memorials, and a cruise on the Shieldhall. ‘In The Footsteps of the Spitfire’ includes a visit to Solent Sky Museum with its R J Mitchell and Spitfire displays, a guided walk around Woolston, once home to the Supermarine Spitfire Factory, and a cruise on the Shieldhall. ‘In The Footsteps of The Mayflower’ includes a visit to SeaCity Museum with its ‘Gateway to the World’ Gallery, a walk around Southampton’s Old Town to see the towers and vaults known to the Pilgrim Fathers in 1620, and a cruise on the Shieldhall. These are available on all Shieldhall’s 2hr cruises (priced at £31 for the package) and 3hr cruises (priced at £38.50 for the package) during the 2019 season. A package has also been developed with Hollycombe Steam in the Country, where groups can experience ‘Steam on Water, Steam on Land, Steam by Day and Steam by Night’ on Sat 14th September. With Shieldhall staging its 2hr ‘Heritage Open Day Cruise’ between 4pm and 6pm, and Hollycombe its popular ‘Fairground at Night’, this is a great chance to experience the sights, smells and sounds of a vintage steamship and a vintage fairground in one exciting trip! Hollycombe is based at Liphook, under one hour from Shieldhall via the M271, M27 and A3.
