Portsmouth Historic Dockyard’s all-attraction ticket takes the guesswork out of planning the perfect day out. Valid all year round, it includes unlimited entry to all attractions, ships and museums.
Now included for free in the ticket is the mast-rigging. Visitors can experience what it would be like to be a sailor on the high seas in Boathouse 4 and see if they have what it takes to climb to the top of the mast.
Highlights include a brand new exhibition ‘Women and the Royal Navy: Pioneers to Professionals’ which tells the incredible 250-year long story of women working in the Naval Service. Tales of cross-dressing as male sailors and living secret lives is just one part of this fascinating story. The exhibition opens in the centenary year of the Woman’s Royal Naval Service (WRNS) formation and is a superb taster of women’s vital role in defending our shores.
Don’t miss a trip to the Mary Rose, Henry VIII’s first love, which for the first time ever provides unrestricted views of the ship and life-sized projections of the crew. Be sure to download the new Mary Rose app to get more from your visit. Also, take the new visitor’s route on board the world’s most famous warship, HMS Victory, and be one of the first to try the brand new audio guide as the drama of the battle of Trafalgar unfolds, deck-by-deck, hour by hour, when the ship sets sail from Portsmouth.
Visit the Victorian powerhouse, HMS Warrior 1860, as well as unique Gallipoli Campaign survivor - HMS M.33. - before taking a short detour to the Royal Marines Museum at Eastney (closing on 31st March 2017). Be wowed, and moved, by the greatest naval battle of all time – the Battle of Jutland – through never-before-seen displays and galleries in the newest blockbuster exhibition 36 Hours: Jutland 1916, The Battle That Won the War.
If that’s not enough, get out onto the water with a harbour tour and use the water bus to get to our Gosport-based attractions. Submerse yourself in the only remaining Second World War-era submarine, HMS Alliance before visiting neighbouring Explosion Museum of Naval Firepower which tells the exciting story of naval warfare.
With so much to see and do, there are plenty of reasons to return again and again throughout the year.
All-Attraction ticket includes entry to:
• The Mary Rose: Watch this breath-taking 16th Century ship come alive in a way not seen in any other museum in the world. See the extraordinary collection of Tudor artefacts recovered from the sea after nearly 500 years.
• HMS Victory: The world’s most celebrated warship has undergone her biggest change. A major reinterpretation of her visitor route through the ship enables visitors to follow in the footsteps of Nelson, its most famous Admiral.
• HMS Warrior 1860: The world’s first iron-hulled, armoured warship launched in 1860 and never fired a shot in anger, yet changed naval warfare forever.
• 36 hours: Jutland 1916, The Battle That Won The War: This brand new exhibition from The National Museum of the Royal Navy reveals the story behind the greatest naval battle in history (included from the 18th February).
