Found this Gem by accident when going to the Elizabethan house. Were lucky because they were actually steaming that day. Very helpful crew who were great with our 5 and 4 year olds. Don't miss this place - such a treat.

An amazing Steam Drifter with an amazing story to tell. The only one left. So lovely that it has been preserved for the public to be able to enjoy its wonderful history. Staff on board very welcoming with a wealth of knowledge.
