To celebrate the Summer of Play, join the National Maritime Museum and Jaques of London in the museum grounds, for maritime-inspired games. 

Drop in and play every day across the week. 

Life on board ship could be difficult and sailors often played dominoes, cards and more to pass the time, whilst games such as quoits have long been popular on cruise liners. Try your hand at giant dominoes, quoits and more, all for free this summer.
