Action Stations Climbing Wall

Action Stations

Housed in the magnificent Boathouse 6, Action Stations offers a wide range of interactive displays and completes the Dockyard story by bringing visitors within reach of today's modern high-tech Royal Navy.

It even has the royal seal of approval from HRH the Duke of York, himself an ex-serving naval officer, who formally opened Action Stations in 2001. With a twinkle in his eye, Prince Andrew said of his visit...

“I have spent a number of years in the Navy but I have never had so much fun in 20 minutes!"

NEW for Spring 2014 - Sky Tykes is a rope course with little ones in mind, designed specifically for children ranging in age from 2-7 years old. The Sky Tykes course puts agility to the test with rope bridges and balance beams, and has no set route or time limit - you're limited only by your imagination.
