“Surreal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

It was placed by the side of the road in a park opposite some modern houses and looked a bit odd. However it is worth seeing - more interesting to us was the fact that the park is formed from the old Hovercraft terminal and it was fun working out how it used to be. There are loos and a snack place with ice creams.

You can park for free if you get a coffee from the amazing little hut. Food is good value. Lovely walks down to the old hoverport. Fascinating little corner.

“Fascinating and beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

The Viking Ship is fascinating, well kept and beautiful. The location has great views of the sea. On a lovely day its a perfect spot for a picnic or a snack at the little cafe.
Good area for a walk and there is a cycle route here.
