Such an interesting find in the Hull Marina, well preserved, well informed and a delight to the eye as well as heartwarming as to the tough lives that were had by all those onboard this old lightship!! History that can never be forgotten!!

Only giving it a poor score because I have been many times over the years and it's never open, seems a bit odd, other Hull Museums seem to be free and open all year. I guess this is some private operation with unavailable volunteer staff?

What a lovely part of history to see a light house on a boat. Moored in the marina for every one to view and look at history gone by.
