The Submarine Heritage Centre is a Charitable Trust that has been established to create a Centre that will celebrate the design, build and operation of Barrow-in-Furness built Submarines since 1886. It will serve both as an absorbing educational venue and a worthwhile visitor attraction for present and future generations.
The Centre will provide a series of displays showing the evolution of submarine building
HMS Onyx on arrival in Barrow Docks
and operations at Barrow. Onyx will form the main attraction, enabling visitors to experience first-hand what life was like for the crew onboard this classic British submarine.
Generations of the population of Barrow and district have dedicated their working lives to submarine building. The Submarine Heritage Centre aims to recognise and celebrate this achievement and, in so doing, enhance the local economy for future generations at Barrow.
