Once again the Medway Queen Preservation Society is taking part in the annual “Heritage Open Days” weekend. From Friday 12th September through to Sunday 14th the paddle steamer Medway Queen, her visitor centre and the society’s workshops will be open to the public. Guides will be on hand to explain the history of the ship and to show our progress in her restoration. There will be plenty of opportunity to discuss the work done so far, our plans for the future and how you can become part of that future.
The site will be open from 11am to 4pm on all three days and tours of the ship will be arranged according to demand. Access to some areas is dependent on the state of the restoration work but as much as possible will be open to visitors. Other attractions will include the workshops and visitor centre, the society’s bookstall and souvenir shop, light refreshments and other temporary displays and exhibits.
Medway Queen is berthed at Gillingham Pier, Pier Approach Road, Gillingham, Kent. ME7 1RX. Telephone 01634 575717 (Monday to Thursday office hours) for more details or look at www.medwayqueen.co.uk for the latest information as the big day approaches. If you wish to arrange a large group visit please telephone as early as possible to make arrangements and allow us to spread the load evenly.
