Coronavirus Update: Re-opening our doors on Wednesday, 2 December 2020


As per the Government announcements, there will be a review of the Tiers every two weeks - this means that moving forward, there may be sites that open and shut in the future as guidance and Tier classification changes. We recommend that you follow us on our social channels as we will be posting regular updates on the status of each of our sites.

We are really excited to see you all again and we are working on putting our timed visit slots back online. You can book using your Returner ID, or buy new tickets and book your first visit with us in advance. Guidance on how to book your return or new visit can be found on our FAQ, linked below. By the end of the day on Monday, 30th November 2020 we hope to have our timed slots live. To keep you all informed we will be making an official announcement so please keep an eye on our social channels.

We are dependent on the money we generate to care for our ships and collections and incredibly thankful for our visitor’s support so far. However, there’s still a long road to recovery so if you wanted to buy your tickets now and continue to support us during this challenging time, you have 12 months after the purchase to redeem. It is a wonderful way of showing your continued support. For more information or to support us further, please follow this link

For more details about the changes to our sites, tickets and for any other general questions, we recommend that you visit our FAQs - these are reviewed and updated every week.

If you still want to get in touch, our staff will be on reduced hours and so emailing us at will be the best way to get in touch.
