Come aboard our tall ship, Polly Woodside and join in the fun!
After travelling 1.5 million miles and circumnavigating the world 17 times 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.
Polly Woodside offers a range of activities for visitors including a history gallery, wharf with picnic facilities and children’s Crew Calls. We also have Children’s Birthday parties, Pirate Sundays, live theatre and school excursions.
