This summer – the Dockyard is jam-packed with activities for the whole family including:

  • Doc. Yard’s Summer Show – All new for 2019 – the theme this year is Superheroes. Doc and Bunsen are back this summer with their interactive science show and hands-on activities. How super is the human body?
  • A Pirate’s Life for Me – Our family friendly experience from the V&A Museum of Childhood. Hosted in No.1 Smithery – Pirates are brought to life through interactive play areas (including a Pirate Ship), displays and objects that explore pirates as mythical characters throughout the ages.
