What's on

The Nautilus Welfare Fund frequently runs events for those living in Mariners' Park and the wider seafaring community.

There is a 'set menu' of weekly activities and many take place in the various function and games rooms at the Trinity House Hub and Seafarers UK Centenary Wing extension, as well as the Care Home.

As retired seafarers are often male, there are a number of special men's health and wellbeing events, designed specifically for older gentlemen.
