Cruise down Southampton Water to the Solent on heritage Steamship Shieldhall and then head west and travel out beyond Hurst Castle and the Needles Passage to the Needles themselves, one of the most photographed and iconic coastal locations in the UK. On your return pass the departing cruise ship Queen Victoria (subject to confirmation) – always the chance to sound the distinctive Shieldhall whistle and play the ‘Shieldhall Organ’!

As part of your cruise, see the impressive engine room with its original steam engines at work and the bridge, with its traditional instruments and gleaming brasswork; admire the ship’s steam assisted steering gear (similar to that used on Titanic); talk to the Captain and volunteer crew; pass close to the great ocean liners and container ships; listen to an informed commentary on the sights and sounds of the Solent; walk the teak decks; relax in the Saloon with a wide range of refreshments including tea / coffee; real ale; a range of Titanic bottled beers; wine and hot and cold food, available on all trips.

Children will have fun with an interactive Shieldhall Log Book, collecting stickers from various stations on board!
