Unique Venue

The Royal Dockyard Chapel was built in the 1830s, and completed in 1835. Over the years it has served many purposes, and is now a Grade II* listed building and houses the collections of the Sunderland Trust as Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre. The displays tell the story of Pembroke Dockyard, the military presence in the area and of the flying boats once stationed here, and of Short Sunderland T9044 which sank in a storm in 1940. Access to the displays will be included as part of any venue hire package.
