Portsmouth Historic Dockyard - Mary Rose Museum
Wednesday 14 June 2017 - BOOKING APRIL & MAY (please read synopsis of this visit below)

Wednesday 14 June 2017

Portsmouth Historic Dockyard is home to three historic British warships: Henry VII's doomed flagship Mary Rose, Nelson's flagship HMS Victory, and the world's first iron battleship, HMS Warrior.

The Mary Rose is the only 16th century warship on display anywhere in the world.  Explore Henry VIII's favourite warship - raised from the Solent and carefully conserved for future generations.  The story of the Mary Rose is one of the most fascinating in naval history.  Battles fought against the French for over 30 years before sinking off the coast of Portsmouth in 1545 and then being raised from the seabed more than 470 years later and of her meticulous conservation.  Her dramatic story is revealed inside the purpose-built Museum (opened in May 2013).

Visit the National Museum of the Royal Navy and enjoy a Harbour tour to complete your day.
