Safety during Covid Pandemic

Remembrance Service

The Centre will hold a Remembrance Service on Friday 12th November at 11.00 hours led by Jeremy Hellier, Port Chaplain for Mission to Seafarers.   Medals and decorations may be worn. 

Whilst we would love to receive everyone for this service, space is limited due to Covid Restrictions, therefore please make contact before embarking on your journey to the Centre. 

The Centre is pleased to announce that earlier this year it was confirmed that QVSR (Queen Victoria Seamen's Rest) will proceed with the transfer of the Port of Bristol Seafarer's Centre into its organisation.  This will hopefully, ensure the ongoing smooth operation of the Centre and its assistance to the many Seafarers visiting both Portbury and Avonmouth Ports in Bristol. 

A furry visitor to the Centre! 

Despite being a very difficult year, with the Centre being closed periodically, we have managed to serve those Seafarers in need of a welcome place to visit and recharge, providing them with sim cards and snacks and purchases and a friendly face on land.  The Centre has many measures in place for the health and safety of its visitors, including hand sanitizer stations, a free face mask to those who need one, we still ask that face masks please be worn when inside the Centre, in compliance with Government Guidelines.  We also have a QR code for scanning, should you wish to make use of this.  As from 19th July 2021, restrictions have been eased and we are pleased to say that the Centre has been returned to its normality, therefore you may use the pool table, TV, X-Box and relax and socialise.


The Port and theSeafarers' Centre has a policy of NO ALCOHOL, therefore we are unfortunately unable to sell any alcohol in the shop.  Similarly, alcohol must NOT be consumed in any area of the Port or the Centre.  If you travel to buy alcohol this can only be consumed away from the Port or if your Captain allows it, on your ship.
