Plan Your Visit

The ship is open to visitors on occasions throughout the year and group tours can also be arranged at a nominal cost, to include refreshments.

As HQS Wellington is a working environment, we are not open to the public except on specified days, but students of maritime history and those interested in the sea are most welcome to visit us by appointment.


As you can see from the map, the ship is just across the road from Temple tube station, which is on the District & Circle Lines.

Blackfriars is also close, offering connections to Thameslink and SouthEastern rail services.

The HQS Wellington is a 10 minute walk from Embankment tube station via Victoria Embankment Gardens and from Waterloo, it takes less than 15 minutes.

Just in case there’s any mistaking it, HQS Wellington is shown below, as can be seen from Temple tube station exit.
