SS Shieldhall

About

SS Shieldhall is a heritage cargo/passenger steamship included in the National Historic Fleet. Launched on the Clyde in 1955, she was built on classic lines and retains her original machinery and traditional wheelhouse.

Withdrawn from commercial service in 1985, she was purchased by the Solent Steam Packet Charity who continue to operate Shieldhall today. Now based in Southampton and operated by a team of dedicated volunteers, enjoy alongside functions or sail along Southampton Water / The Solent with a selection from 2 hr to all-day cruises.

As part of your visit, see the impressive engine room with its original steam engines at work and the bridge, with its traditional instruments and gleaming brasswork; talk to the captain and our crew; listen to the commentary as we pass the sights of Southampton Water and The Solent; pass close to the Great Ocean Liners and container ships; walk the teak decks; relax in the Saloon with our wide range of refreshments including tea / coffee, a range of Titanic Ales, wine and hot and cold food.

Enjoy the cruising style of yesterday, as it used to be – today!
