Waverley in Portsmouth by Iain McPherson

About

Step aboard Waverley, the last seagoing paddle steamer in the world. Experience the sight, sound and thrill of travelling on this magnificent steamship.

Waverley returns to the South Coast for the first time in four years, with sailings out of Portsmouth (as well as Southampton, Poole, Yarmouth and others).

Hear the telegraph ring and watch the mighty steam engine start to drive the ship’s massive paddle wheels, view the stunning coastline, visit new places, recapture happy memories and don’t forget to visit the Souvenir Shop and purchase an exclusive memento!

Paddle steamer Waverley is registered on The National Historic Fleet as being a vessel of pre-eminent national significance. She has operated in preservation since 1975 and become a national treasure, carrying over 6 million passengers.

Journeys from Portsmouth include a trip around the Isle of Wight, plus Southampton (one way), Yarmouth, Swanage and Lulworth. See the booking pages of the Waverley website for full times, dates and details, and to book your place.
