Head to the Solent Cruise, celebrating 200 years of Steam in the Solent - Sailing from Southampton

Sunday 19th July 2020, 15:00 - 18:00

24 July 1820 saw the introduction of the first steam packet between Southampton and the Isle of Wight when The Prince of Cobourg began the first of her three-times daily voyages on Southampton Water. Join us as the Shieldhall marks this notable event with displays and entertainment for the occasion!

See the departing cruise ships Anthem of the Seas and Aurora on Shieldhall’s return to berth, always the cue to sound our whistle and play the ‘Shieldhall Organ’!

As part of your cruise, see the impressive engine room with its original steam engines at work and the bridge, with its traditional instruments and gleaming brasswork; admire the ship’s steam assisted steering gear (similar to that used on Titanic); talk to the Captain and our volunteer crew; pass close to the great ocean liners and container ships; walk the teak decks; relax in the Saloon with our wide range of refreshments including tea / coffee; real ale; a range of Titanic bottled beers; wine and hot and cold food, available on all trips.

Children will have fun with our interactive Shieldhall Log Book, collecting stickers from various stations on board!
