DP World & P&O Heritage

The P&O Heritage Collection is a vital cultural and business asset of over 35,000 historical items which charts the innovations and developments of British shipping and global trade over two centuries. P&O Heritage is owned and operated by DP World which takes great pride in its efforts to safeguard and share this legacy collection.
