Follow in the footsteps of Captain Scott and Ernest Shackleton aboard the Royal Research Ship Discovery at the multi award-winning Discovery Point, and experience one of the greatest stories ever told.
In 1901 Captain Robert Falcon Scott set sail in the tall ship Discovery. As part of the epic voyage Scott and his men spent two long harsh winters frozen into the crushing Antarctic ice. Discovery returned home in 1904 to a hero’s welcome and a place in maritime history.
Come face to face with the ‘Heroes of the Ice’ at Discovery Point, an award-winning attraction and museum that tells the story of RRS Discovery. The exhibitions are a mix of state of the art audiovisual and computer-based multimedia, alongside displays of actual artefacts that belonged to Scott and the brave crew who sailed with him.
