Be clear, this is not original Viking. But it is a replica Viking ship and it has sailed across the North Sea

I remember seeing this when I was around 5 years old so it was great to see that it is still there after 60 years so it has been around for a long time . Well worth a visit.

Obviously not original but looks good and worth a quick walk around. Good location with tea/coffee shop on site. Also good for picnic and close to bird santuary

This seems to be now hidden away from the main road, unlike many years ago when it was a prominent landmark. It is still a great site to visit to take in the size of the ship, and it is ok to park up and...More
