Come and see this marvellous project as we continue the conservation of our 15th century vessel, found on the banks of the River Usk just 13 years ago.  Hear the story of the excavation of the remains; see the conservation process and some of our 550 year old timbers and precious artefacts.

Once we are open we would be happy to host organised group visits to the Ship Centre.  To arrange a group visit, please contact the Ship Team on 01633 274167 or e-mail Newport.ship@newport.gov.uk .
