HM Frigate Unicorn School Trips
His Majesty's Frigate Unicorn, of 46 guns, was built for the Royal Navy in the Royal Dockyard at Chatham and launched in 1824. She is now the World's last intact warship from the days of sail.
There is much more to Unicorn than appears from the outside. All our visitors are delighted once they come onboard and find out just how atmospheric and charming the ship is inside, and how much there is to see.
