The Steamship Shieldhall is the largest working steam ship in Britain. A member of the National Historic Fleet she serves as a sea going tribute to Britain's maritime heritage. As a passenger you too can experience the golden age of steam by booking on an excursion or visiting her in Southampton.
Shieldhall is also available for private charter or for hire as a venue alongside in Southampton, see our Private Hire page.
Steamship Shieldhall has launched her 2019 sailing programme. The Southampton based heritage steamship will enjoy a busy programme with some 24 cruises, comprising a mixture of 2hr, 3hr, 4hr, ½ day and full day sailings.
There are a number of early bird savings too, giving an added reason to book early and to look forward to the summer!
