Explore a Shipwright's home...

Step through the door of the reconstructed Shipwright’s Cottage to be transported back in time…

The Shipwright's Cottage is open and we are operating a one-way system. Please consider following Government advice and wearing a mask in our indoor spaces.

Once home to shipwright Thomas Burlace and his family, you can now explore this charming cottage to see how Thomas and his family would have lived. Entry to the Shipwright's Cottage is free.

LUXURY LIVING

As skilled craftsmen, shipwrights were in high demand during wartime, which meant they earned an above-average salary. Look out for luxury items such as decorated tableware.

An Education

Keep an eye out for the bible on the living room window sill – proof that the Burlace family were educated and literate.

Discover more about the people who lived and worked in Buckler's Hard in the Maritime Museum & Buckler's Hard Story, where you can compare the Shipwright’s Cottage with the cramped 'one up, one down' residence of a labourer.


An absolutely enchanted maritime treasure!!
