Full description
This full-day tour from the London area takes you on a scenic drive to the historic naval dockyards of Portsmouth.

Not only does the harbor feature a number of museums, you’ll see the famous ships that attract visitors from around the world as well.

On your tour of several historic Royal Navy ships, the highlight will undoubtedly be HMS Victory, Nelson’s flagship during the famous Battle of Trafalgar. Learn what life was like for these brave sailors, climb the decks, and see where Nelson lived and died.

Another highlight is the Mary Rose, the flagship of King Henry VIII. The ship sank on its maiden voyage, just outside the harbor wall. It was raised from the seabed in the 1980s and is now housed in a brand-new museum along with thousands of artifacts.

You’ll also see HMS Warrior, the most powerful ship of its time in the 19th century.

If weather allows the trip also includes a harbor tour by boat, so you can see actual modern-day Royal Navy vessels in dock and many others visiting the huge natural harbor.

Enjoy a complimentary packed lunch and drinks. You may also like to treat yourself to some fish and chips by the harbor!
