Portsmouth Historic Dockyard is still the home of the modern Royal Navy, but also houses Nelson’s flagship HMS Victory and many other well-known ships and museums. Interesting though they may be we just haven’t time to visit them all and I have deliberately chosen the new £27 million Mary Rose Museum which is located just yards from HMS Victory as it shows a most significant insight into Tudor life and creates the new centre-piece to the Dockyard. This Tudor ship captured the world’s imagination when she was raised from the seabed in 1982 and is the only 16thC warship on display anywhere in the world. This brand-new Museum, built around her, reunites her with many of the 19,000 artefacts recovered and we will be able to see the ship with its preserving sprays switched off and the final phase of the hull’s conservation.
The 45-minute Harbour Tour offers unrivalled views ofBritain’s modern frigates, destroyers and helicopter-carriers as well as historic buildings, sights and ships. The tour enables visitors to enjoy fascinating views across the harbour whilst listening to a lively commentary.
