Newports Medieval Ship is older than the Mary Rose! It's very interesting and manned by several very knowledgeable volunteers who are keen to share their knowledge with visitors.
I look forward to visiting again to catch up on the progress of the project.
Staff really friendly and have so much knowledge! The organisation's determination at preserving the ship is a real credit to Wales. Well done then! Also lovely gift shop!
Free attraction so go and have a look!
