City Quay and 'the Unicorn'
City Quay and 'the Unicorn'
Redevelopment of Victoria Dock has seen it surrounded by retail outlets in City Quay. His Majesty's Frigate UNICORN, of 46 guns, was built for the Royal Navy in Chatham dockyard, and she was launched in 1824.

The classic sailing frigate was a fast and powerful warship, and was one of the most successful and charismatic ship designs of the age.

UNICORN's construction, however, is far from conventional. She is a unique survivor from the brief transitional period between the traditional wooden sailing ship and the revolutionary iron steamship.
