About this Event

Book tickets to this FREE family day full of discovery.

This weekend event will focus on the 200th anniversary of the launch of the HMS Beagle – one of the most famous ships in history. She circumnavigated the globe and through her voyage; her famous passenger Charles Darwin; and her Captain Robert Fitzroy, her name is synonymous with discovery in the fields of science, meteorology and even space exploration. She then ended her career as a watch vessel at Paglesham, in the Rochford District.

With attractions designed to stimulate and interest visitors to learn more about HMS Beagle’s history; her role in combating smuggling on the Essex coast; and her legacy in the fields of science and engineering. We have contributors from numerous renowned institutions such as the Met Office, The Geological Society, The Linnean Society of London and the Sedgwick Museum plus many more.

So, just like the Beagle did all those years ago….we want to commemorate the spirit of adventure in a voyage around the Rochford District, leaving an inspiring legacy for future generations.
