Each boat has a plaque explaining its history (most of them are around 100 years old), and residents are around to answer any questions about what its like living onboard.
Don’t be shy with the questions, we’ve heard most of them before….Do you have electricity/internet/TV? Does it move? Why did you decide to move onto a boat? etc.
Once you’re finished seeing the boats relax in the cafe with a tea/coffee and slice of cake; try your hand at knot tying on the rope board; or attempt an activity sheet.

Other events at Hermitage
There are “Repair Cafes” planned for the following dates. They are held in the afternoon (see below for hours) and offer a drop-in opportunity to get help or share knowledge about fixing household items. People who own boats are usually adept at this skill, out of necessity!
