SS Nomadic

Step aboard the newly refurbished SS Nomadic and join us in celebrating over 100 years of authentic maritime and social history.

Once on board, visitors can learn about Nomadic's turbulent and exciting history; with active service as a mine sweeper and troop carrier in both World Wars, over fifty years of experience carrying thousands of passengers to the world's largest Trans-Atlantic liners and nearly thirty years as a restaurant moored beside the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Nomadic has a million stories to tell.

Visitor Experience

Guided experience. Fully interactive, with games, dressing up, projections and lots of original features. As part of your tour, you will be transported back in time, travelling through the first and second class lounges, led by one of our qualified guides who will provide a unique insight into the amazing life of Nomadic before being let loose to explore at your own pace.
Audio Tours are also available to self guide in English, French, Italian and Spanish (Cost: £1.50).
