Closure Notices –

  • HMS Gannet will be closed to the public all day due to a private event on Saturday 26th August 
  • HMS Gannet will be closed to the public 1pm – 3pm due to a private event on Monday 28th August 

We apologise for any inconveniences. 

Just 35 miles from central London, discover how ships, including HMS Victory, were designed and built.  Climb aboard a sloop, a destroyer and a submarine.  Get hands-on in the Ropery, where rigging for HMS Victory was made and where rope is still made today.  Explore galleries that unfurl the secrets of Great Britain’s magnificent maritime past and its command of the oceans.

As mentioned on BBC Radio 2 on the Chris Evans Show!… Discover more about our rope on our Victorian Ropery tour – “learn the ropes” with a foreman from 1875! All included in our annual tickets. Look out for information later on in the year on our 400 birthday celebrations!
