Medway Queen 2016 reopening

The 2016 reopening of the Medway Queen site is scheduled for Good Friday, 25 March 2016. The ship and Visitor Centre will then be open all four days of the Easter weekend from 10am to 4pm with last admissions at 3pm.

The opening time has been brought forward to allow visitors to the area to fit in a visit to Medway Queen on their way to other attractions such as the Historic Dockyard.

The weekend will include guided tours of the ship and a discovery trail for children. Additional attractions include a massive sale of second hand books on transport related subjects, including ships, buses and railways.

All admissions start at the Visitor Centre with its ‘Graphic Wall’ charting the history of this famous old ship in war and peace.

Annual ticket and ‘save a soldier’ price will be £5 per person, children under 16 £3, Family (two adults and children) £13. Additional soldiers can be rescued from ‘the beach’ at £2-50 per soldier. Terms and conditions apply, annual tickets are non-transferable and are valid for 12 months from the date of first visit.

After Easter the opening hours will be 10am to 4pm (last admission strictly 3pm) on Saturdays and Sundays. Any planned variation from this will be posted on the society website www.medwayqueen.co.uk. All admissions are via the Visitor Centre and please note that access may be affected at short notice by restoration work and other factors.
