Polly Woodside

After travelling 1.5 million miles across the globe, the Polly Woodside now welcomes you aboard

Built in Belfast in 1885, the three-masted cargo vessel carried coal and wheat between England and South America. You can join the crew, come aboard for a tour of the ship and discover what life was like on a tall ship sailing the seven seas.

Come aboard and explore at your own pace or join one of our guided tours.

Polly Woodside is open on the first Sunday of the month, with tours at 10.30am, 11.30am, 1.30pm and 2.30pm

Please arrive a few minutes early if you would like to join a tour. Each tour is approximately 45 – 60 minutes.
