Supporting the Preservation and Operation of Paddle Steamers WAVERLEY and KINGSWEAR CASTLE


Supporting the Preservation and Operation of Paddle Steamers WAVERLEY and KINGSWEAR CASTLE

The Paddle Steamer Preservation Society is Britain’s longest established, largest and most successful steamship preservation group. Founded in 1959, we have sailed our ships since 1975.

We are a registered charity. Through our associated charitable and non-profit distributing companies, we operate Britain’s only two operational historic paddle steamers, both of which have won major heritage awards.

Without us, there would no longer be the opportunity to sail on these unique ships and experience the delight of viewing large areas of Britain’s beautiful coastline.
