Details

The exhibition is being run in partnership with the Nelson Museum in Great Yarmouth and it is expected to be the largest exhibition of Nelson artefacts in Norfolk, outside the Museum. It will run for a minimum of two years and includes pieces loaned from the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich and the Nelson Museum in Great Yarmouth.

Born locally in Burnham Thorpe in 1758, Nelson frequented The Hoste – formerly the Pitt Arms – in his early years. Before being recalled to service in 1792, he is known to have stayed in Room 5; he would catch the morning coach to London from Burnham Market, as well as receiving his dispatch papers there. He also used the Pitt Arms as a recruiting post. Our hotel was named after another local seafarer Captain Sir William Hoste and the exhibition tells the story of William Hoste’s relationship with Nelson and how Nelson nurtured the young sailors who worked with him. Although Hoste’s story is not so well known, he’s another Norfolk hero to be proud of.

‘A History of The Hoste’, a book celebrating The Hoste’s strong maritime connections and links with Lord Nelson is also available from The Hoste, price £10

Children welcome
