Portsmouth Historic Dockyard
Visit us at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard for a truly memorable family day out! See Henry VIII’s one true love as you’ve never seen her before. Be wowed by the stunning panoramic views of the ship from all nine galleries and discover thousands of artefacts recovered from the seabed. Explore our historic ships, including Lord Nelson’s flagship HMS Victory, HMS Warrior 1860, the world’s first iron-hulled armoured warship and HMS M.33, the only surviving ship from the First World War’s Gallipoli Campaign. Visit our new blockbuster exhibition, 36 hours: Jutland 1916, The Battle That Won The War, to find out about the greatest naval battle ever fought. Your day out won’t be complete without an adventure-packed trip to Action Stations, where you can train like a Commando or try the new Ninja Force assault course, a brand new attraction based on TV’s popular Ninja Warrior series – the first of its kind in the UK. Add in a complimentary Harbour Tour to cruise around Portsmouth Harbour.
