The 2017 year as City of Culture has been the trigger for greater appreciation of the city and its heritage. Our visit starts with an informal gathering on Friday, 1st March 2019 at the Maritime Museum between 10am and 11am. This museum, set within the former Dock Offices, is part of a £27.5m redevelopment of the city’s maritime heritage.
From 10.45am we take a half-hour walking tour across the Old Town, passing:
11.15am - Brief tour of The Deep, followed by lunch in the Castaways café on the 3rd floor [nb. Lunch is not provided as part of the meeting, and plans may give way to requests for the local delicacy of Pattie & chips with scraps and chip spice!]
1pm - Meet Louise Kirby, Director of Operations and People for at least an hour. In one of the Sealab rooms, Louise will outline the history of The Deep, the current position and aspirations. There will be plenty of time for questions, and for another look around the attraction.
Mid-afternoon dispersal for:
