Very educational & informative. Visit the museum building, explore the vessels. Maritime past & present from steam to recent. Look out for the special days when there are re-enactments - great for children. Visit South Bank & the river while there.

If you are the side of South Bank, give this place a visit if you into boating history, it short a short walk from the cafes and man made beach. They have very interesting things on display.
