Overview

History comes to life as you step aboard Nelson’s Schooner Pickle. Our friendly, informative staff provide a unique environment of things to see, hear, experience and touch. During the year they run demonstrations and activities that show what life was like on an 18th century sailing ship. They'll show you how ships navigated themselves around the world, how rope was made, what people ate, what people on board wore. Nelson's Schooner Pickle is a full size working replica of HMS Pickle famed for her role during and after the Battle of Trafalgar. The Royal Navy celebrate Pickle Night to this day. She is now static for 2013 but has re-enacted voyages around Cape Trafalgar in October and November 2012. Don't forget to take a look at the surgeon’s tools like an amputation saw or a fleam or scarifier. See the sailors clothes and tools, carry a powder monkey’s charge bucket that young boys would carry about the decks supplying the guns with gunpowder. Children can play some of the games like ‘Trafalgar’ or throwing the heaving line. The sounds of being on an 18th century sailing ship fill your ears from the moment you arrive at Nelson’s Schooner Pickle.

All hail Captain Robin and his mates at the Schooner Pickle! A motley crew of 20 five year old pirates boarded the Pickle to celebrate a birthday, and what a time they had - ringing the bell, learning about knots, swashbuckling, "sitting turtle" and keeping...More
