Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre

We are an all weather family attraction in the heart of Wales’ only Royal Dockyard, celebrating the significant heritage of this unique west Wales town.

Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre is an independent museum operated by Pembroke Dock Sunderland Trust, a registered charity.


We hope that you and your family are well and keeping safe in these unprecedented times. As you may already know, as a consequence of the Covid-19 Virus pandemic, the Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre is now closed to the public for the foreseeable future. Our visitors’ entry fees and purchases in both the gift shop and the coffee shop are vital to the financial viability of the Trust and we will struggle to survive without that revenue.

Government monies have been pledged to support many businesses with rent and rates assistance, loans and grants in the future months. However, it is still unclear as yet whether our Trust will be eligible for any of these and so the Trustees are seeking your help to ensure that we can “weather the storm” and continue to remain viable.

Many of us will be facing challenges during this national crisis. However, in the next few months none of us will be visiting pubs, clubs, cafes, restaurants, theatres, cinemas and so, for some, our weekly expenses will be lower.

We ask you to please consider a small donation to help support the Trust through this period when we will receive no income and yet will still need to fund our running costs.

With your help, once this pandemic has abated, we will all be able to meet up again in ‘PD’ and re-open the Heritage Centre with great pride as we had done before.

No donation is too small; anything will assist the Trust at this very difficult time.

If you can donate please use our Local Giving page, and if you are a UK taxpayer please also remember to “Gift-Aid” your donation as this will add 25% to the Trust’s receipts. Anyone wishing to set up a direct debit – thank you! – can also do so via our Local Giving page.

If you do kindly wish to donate but for some reason are unable to do so online, please email us at

Alternatively you can post a cheque, payable to Pembroke Dock Sunderland Trust, to Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre, Meyrick Owen Way, Royal Dockyard, Pembroke Dock, SA72 6WS.

With many thanks for your support in these exceptional times.

“I thoroughly applaud the activities of the Trust in seeking to
keep the rich history of Pembroke Dockyard alive.
I appreciated all their help in the preparation of my book Erebus – The Story of a Ship, and I hope, like me, you’ll give this local treasure all the support they need.”
