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 guided tours. We also have Children’s Birthday parties, Pirate Sundays, live theatre and school excursions.
Come and in in the fun for the Heritage Festival on Saturday April 29.
Step back in time to 1885 with a re-enactment of the launch of the Polly Woodside at the Workman, Clark and Co, shipyards’ Belfast at 11am. After the performance, our new young recruits will learn to scrub the decks and load the ship, followed by a guided tour.
We will also be running tours of the very special Duke & Orr’s Dock Pumphouse at 12.30pm, 1.30pm and 2.30pm.
