Hms Victory, Portsmouth Reviews
HMS Victory, is a 104 gun, first-rate ship. You can walk inside and see how massive it is, and it is still in a very good condition, however the ship is 253 years old. It is constantly being renovated, the lower beams and trusses are still originals. Amazing work! I am lucky that I could see this. (Largest ship in Cossacks strategy game from mid 2000's).
So interesting to re visit HMS Victory, in the time since my last visit, they have discovered that the paint was the wrong colour and it has been repainted in its original colours. Currently undergoing a long restoration program, the upper masts have been removed along with 20 miles of rigging. Below decks, the way that you are guided through the ship does mean that you will be walking for what feels like a really long way, so if you are not able to walk far, make sure you take this into consideration. However the displays are really good and informative, interesting to see all the weapons on display, not just the canons but also muskets and swords. Like a lot of places, it really needs more than one visit to really appreciate it all.
HMS Victory… what an amazing piece of history to visit. In fact, the whole experience down at the docks is amazing but this stands out so much. We spent a good hour and a half going over as much of it as possible. Loved it so much that we instead to go back down in the next couple of months to see it again. It is one of those things that is worth travelling a couple of hours to see.
England's 'finest battleship'. Nelson's flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar. A brass plaque shows where he was fatally shot (see pic). This stunning ship has it all. Bristling with guns and history. A must for all ages. Efficient, friendly staff. Watch your head!
Portsmouth historical dockyard. Some interesting and amazing history with lots to see. Entrance price is fair but now the ship known as the Mary rose is charged separately which puts the price up by about 15 pound per person. Boat tours, one to a submarine which you can go inside of, all included in price. Large shop and cafe. Food prices reasonable and generally good presentation and taste.
