My partner and I visited the Portsmouth Dockyard during the Dickens Christmas Festival. It was a superb event, with stalls and individual crafts, music and people dressed in Victorian fashion walking around. We spotted Fagin with his boys, chimney sweeps and lady’s and gentlemen in their finery. There was even a snow machine which gave it all a really authentic feel. We popped in to the Boathouse for hot beverages and discovered the best GLUTEN FREE CAKES we have ever tasted! A BIG thank you to Karen, the lovely lady who was in charge, she made our day, and certainly knows how to make people feel welcome..... we will definitely return again soon!!
One of the main historical attractions of the area, the historic dockyard is a must if you visit Portsmouth. Within the dockyard, you can visit Nelson's flag ship the HMS Victory in which the great sea hero was killed at Trafalgar in October 1805, see the first British Navy's iron ship the HMS Warrior which is a 40-gun steam-powered armoured frigate built for the Royal Navy in 1859–1861. She was the name ship of the Warrior-class ironclads. Plus you can visit , for a little extra the preserved Mary Rose built by Henry VIII and sank in battle in 1545. There is a great restaurant in Boathouse number 7, and several other great maritime museums on the site.
This was a great visit. So much more than I expected. The Warrior and the Victory alone can take a day. Recommend the history talkers as well. 4 sorry stories about historical events partly acted and narrated. My kids were glued. Word of warning for the Victory, if over 6ft expect little if no headroom....bad back!!!
The Mary Rose exhibition is very impressive and a must see. A lot of work and some very clever design put in place to help visitors Bette understand. Food was poor, maybe visit Costa or something else in town. Gift shops are huge and full of selections. All staffs are very friendly and knowledgeable. Perfect for a family day out
Got a family ticket valid for 1 year. Well worth the money. So much going on here. About 4 visits so far, still not seen /done all that is available yet. Boats trips, museums, ships, making a rope was one highlight! Staff very friendly and knowable. Security good as well..
