Guided Tours on board HMS Caroline

See the world’s last surviving warship from the Battle of Jutland, HMS Caroline, like you have never seen her before.

Guided tours of the First World War era ship by expertly trained historical guides are being held for a limited time between 24 February and 22 March.

Guests will be transported back in time to 1916, where they will hear a variety of stories from the First World War, told by expert guides.

During the hour long tours, visitors will be given a unique tour of the entire vessel from the engine rooms, which still contain the four Parsons steam turbines which propelled the 4,000 tonne light cruiser to speeds in excess of 30 miles per hour, to the Mess Decks which were used to feed almost 300 personnel three times a day.

The human-interest stories are the most compelling and visitors will hear stories about the men who served on board, including boy telegraphist, William Crick. William was only 16 at the time of the Battle of Jutland and his detailed diary informs much of the restoration of the ship.

“HMS Caroline is one of the most fascinating historic ships in the world and attracts visitors from the four corners of the globe,” says Jamie Wilson, General Manager of HMS Caroline.

“Our expert guides now offer unparalleled access to the ship’s intricate history, from construction in 1914 to her role in the Battle of Jutland and the everyday stories of life on board during the First World War, at no extra cost to the visitor,” says Mr Wilson.

Tours will run on the hour every day from 10am until 4pm from 24 February and 22 March 2020 - book your tickets today!
