World of Boats
World of Boats (Discovery Quay, Porth Teigr, Cardiff) – this tourist-friendly attraction features a unique collection of boats from around the world. It also tells visitors the history of evolution, navigation, use and restoration of boats. Using high-tech displays and old fashioned craft, World of Boats highlights the best of boats and the skills used to keep them afloat.
There are over 40 historic craft on display, from primitive dug outs and reed boats to current examples of familiar vessels. Many of the boats are the last surviving example of their kind anywhere in the world. The selection on display comes from the UK’s largest collection of historic craft run by the charity EISCA. Their collection of almost 400 vessels will mean that the display will be regularly changed and updated. Admission: £4.99 (adult), free for children under 16 years (accompanied with a paying adult). Additional child: £3.00. Hours: opens at 10:30 am. Closing times vary. Check the World of Boats website for more details: www.worldofboatscardiff.com
