CELEBRATE 200 YEARS OF STEAM ON THE SOLENT
18th July 2021
A unique day trip that takes us to Southampton (lunch). During the afternoon we board the steamship “SS Shieldhall” which is a member of the National Historic Fleet for a cruise along the Solent to commemorate that special day in 1820 when steam ships commenced sailing to the Isle of Wight. There will be appropriate entertainment and displays and we shall be able to see the impressive engine room with its original steam engines at work. Time for tea and other refreshment on board before noticing two huge cruise liners departing on their voyages across the world.
Home by approximately 8.30pm.
(includes cost of Solent cruise)
