Knot-tying displays at Boathouse 4


Do you know your clove hitch from your reef knot?

This half term Boathouse 4 is inviting children to learn about knot tying, an important skill for sailing and used endlessly by the boat team.

Activities include:
Activity sheet – with discovery trail and colouring
Rope-making demonstrations
Badge making (50p)

Ask for a Historic Quarter Pass at the Visitor Centre for free entry to Boathouse 4.
