The worlds last seagoing paddle steamer can be travelled on in Wales

The world's last seagoing paddle streamer called The Waverley is currently running trips across the Bristol Channel and beyond with some departing from Wales!

It has pulled up in Penarth as it starts its tour of the Bristol Channel, in which people can travel aboard the historic steamship.

As the sole survivor of its kind, the ship has become some what of an icon and has returned to offering trips leaving from the Welsh coast for the first time in five years! You'll be pleased to know Waverley is giving people the opportunity to step aboard for a nostalgic trip on the famous steamship until June 23 this summer.

Photos from inside the shop show that guests will be able to relax with a lovely drink in one of its traditional bars, as well as relax aboard the desk or the lounge.
