The Boat Shop

Every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday - 10am to 4pm

The team in the boat shop look after and maintain our fleet of wooden, historic boats throughout the year. Using a combination of traditional and modern tools they are more than happy to talk to visitors about the boats and the work they are doing. As well as looking after the boats, they also crew them and taken them to various events in the Island and in nearby French ports.

Sally the Smuggler

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday subject to availability 10am to 4pm

Meet Sally the Smuggler.  She’s definitely on the fiddle, but how and why?

She will try to distract you with tales of piracy, privateering, shipbuilding and the perils of cod and oyster fishing, but Sally has a loose tongue.

She might let slip where she stashes her stuff and why she has such an enormous skirt…as long as you keep it under your hat, jacket, petticoat…
