  • Visitor Information

SS RobinThe world's oldest complete steamship, the SS Robin, has been lovingly restored to create an East London maritime landmark. The original 1890 engineroom, former crews' mess,captain's quarters, galley kitchen and restored cargo hold give a rare glimpse into the onboard life of Victorian crew. Founders of the SS Robin Trust, photographers David and Nishani Kampfner, are well respected in the photographic realm and both are regular reviewers and judges at European photography festivals including Visa Pour L'Image, Les Rencontres d'Arles, Photo Espana and the UK Association of Photographers Awards.
