Visits to The Danny are FREE and offer a great, shared experience for families. For children, it’s an exciting new world to explore, up gangways and down companionways, peering into darkened engine rooms and mysterious boiler rooms, and relaxing in the saloons and on the promenade deck. And dads and mums have steam engines, local history and classic Art Deco design to enjoy.
For older kids, our free family trail has been created by artist Jim Medway together with children from St Vincent de Paul Primary School, so it explores the curious things in the history of The Danny that sparked the children’s interest.
The younger members of the family will enjoy finding the teddies who have taken over different roles on the Danny – teddy fireman, captain, engineer, steward and VIPs who took a tour on the Danny in the 1920s and 1930s are all on our teddy bear trail, which you can pick up as you board.
