Portsmouth - Maritime Portsmouth (half day)

Depart from the ship today and travel the short distance to the huge and varied museum area of Portsmouth’s Historic Ships. The City’s ancient dockyard is home to two of the most famous ships in British maritime history – the Mary Rose and HMS Victory. The hull of the Mary Rose; Henry VIIIs flagship which capsized in battle against the French is 1545 was recovered from the seabed in 1982 along with thousands of 16h Century artefacts. This award-winning exhibition provides a fascinating insight into life at sea 450 years ago.

Berthed outside is the 19th Century HMS Victory, flagship in the Battle of Trafalgar on which the infamous Admiral Nelson was killed in 1805. Other sites include the Royal Naval Museum and the 19th century ironclad HMS Warrior (we will issue a ticket that is valid for any of these sites so that guests have the option). Guests are free to visit any of these exhibits during their time here – our guide will be pleased to offer advice on which ships and exhibitions are most suitable for each individual. Please note that some of the ships have limited access for visitors with physical restrictions such as steep steps and low doorways
