The Boat House is an 18th Century building in the picturesque manner. It functioned as a working dock until the arrival of the railways in the 1860’s. Prior to this all journeys eastward started from the Boat House quayside to Plymouth to fetch household supplies and make connections to London. Today it is the scene of the infamous One Minute Disco at the Port Eliot Festival and home to the Caught By The River venue.
