1.8/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web
The PS Wingfield Castle is a former Humber Estuary ferry, now preserved as a museum ship in Hartlepool, County Durham, England.

The Wingfield Castle was built by William Gray & Company at Hartlepool, and launched in 1934, along with a sister ship, the Tattershall Castle. A third similar vessel, the Lincoln Castle built in Glasgow, was launched in 1940.

She was earmarked to become a floating restaurant in Swansea Marina in the early 1980s but was too wide to fit through the lock gates. She is now preserved at the Museum of Hartlepool as a floating exhibit at Jackson Dock, as part of the visitor attraction known as \"Hartlepool's Maritime Experience\", which also includes HMS Trincomalee.

  • It's a bonus when visiting the HMS Trincomalee. Coffee shop is good valve and the vessel is open to explore - great for the kids. 
  • This boat is open to have a look around and is free, good place to buy a cup of tea / coffee and snack 
  • PSS was built in Hartlepool and quite rightly returned back to her birthplace. Good views over the marina plus you can get lunch on board
