Medway Queen and her visitor centre
OPEN ON SATURDAYS
From Saturday 8th February 2020
Please note that mid-week ship tours are currently not possible, but Saturdays are generally unaffected.
Our focus is to refit the upper aft saloon to make it fit for hire as a venue. The work includes a fire resistant bulkhead, fire doors and other precautions, complete electrical upgrade and considerable work on the bench seating. We also have to find a couple of small “pots of gold”!
LOWER AFT SALOON DISPLAYS
The lower aft saloon has been fitted out as a display area and
"MEDWAY QUEEN - Memories of Dunkirk" is the 2020 theme (From 22nd February)
It is possibile that restoration work will occasionally interrupt access to this area.
