TICKET SALES FOR The Last Voyage of the Gloucester: Norfolk’s Royal Shipwreck 1682 NOW OPEN.
Tickets are free with museum entry, booking strongly advised.
This major exhibition will explore the dramatic discovery of the Gloucester, a warship carrying the future King of England and Scotland that ran aground in heavy seas off the coast of Great Yarmouth in 1682.
On display for the first time are some of the fascinating objects recovered from the wrecksite. Most striking is the bell – that confirmed the ship’s identity — which will be on show alongside beautifully preserved personal effects that tell stories of the passengers and crew, and of life on board the ship.
Learn about the finding of the Gloucester and about the ongoing historical, scientific, and archaeological research into the wreck and its importance.
Free with admission to Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery, booking advised.
