Victoria Basin

Victoria Basin is in close proximity to the historic city centre and the site is dominated by a range of massive and imposing Victorian Warehouses. The entire location is a conservation area, but nearly all of the historic buildings have been sympathetically and successfully restored and redeveloped as offices, apartments and visitor attractions. The working tradition of the docks is emphasised by the continued operation of the Boat Repair Yard and Dry Docks and the presence of tall ships and historic vessels.
