Amazing building, not great for disabled access. Shows a wonderful fishing village history of Shoreham, with info dating back hundreds of years. My teenage children enjoyed it too!

I visited the museum with friends on Saturday (9th August) and we enjoyed spending some time learning about the history of Shoreham. Do watch the video about the early British film making industry. Volunteers are friendly and full of knowledge.The entry fee is £2.50.

A cornucopia of maritime history dating back hundreds of years including many naval artifacts. The building itself spans three floors and has been sympathetically restored with some of the original 12th century architecture intact. The people there giving verbal information (who I assume were volunteers)...More
