Join Excelsior whilst she is moored in the prestigious St Katherine Dock ‘s where we will be opening the hatches and the bulk heads for our annual London Open Ship event.

Doors open from 1pm – 5pm where you will be able to come aboard and find out about Excelsior’s history and her rigging. Our crew will be on hand to show you some of her unique and well preserved features and you will gain a true insight into how life on board would have been back in the 20’s when she was used as a North Sea Fishing vessel in the dead of winter.

Entry is free – but any kind donations made in the barrel would help with the upkeep of such an historic ship – if you would like to support Excelsior more then please do talk to our crew who can advise on how to sign up and become a supporter of The Excelsior Trust or by providing a gift aid declaration for a larger donation by BACS or Cheque.
