Discovery Point

The RRS Discovery was the Antarctic research ship used by Scott and Shackleton in their first voyage to Antarctica, and it's now the centre of the Discovery Point visitor attraction. You can tour the ship, find out more about its history and even book the Wardroom for a lavish hospitality package.

A trip to Discovery Point is an adventure in its own right as audiovisual shows, computer-based multimedia and displays of the actual artefacts of the crew transport you to Antarctica.

Climb aboard Captain Scott's ship RRS Discovery where you will follow in the footsteps of him and his crew, see how they lived, what they ate and witness their hardships and their triumphs. It's a fascinating tale of one of the most heroic voyages of exploration ever undertaken.

A great day out for all the family.
