The Boat Museum

We were here in May 2018, and according to the Nicholson Guide there is a pump out facility available, but the book is out of date in that respect and it's been at least two years since they had it. We did get free entry to the museum as compensation though after kicking up a stink which our loo was definitely doing. --- Sammi Gray-Jones
