Step back in time at the Victorian Festival of Christmas

Portsmouth, Hampshire

Get in the festive spirit at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.


A visit to the Mary Rose Museum, HMS Victory, HMS Warrior 1860, the National Museum of the Royal Navy, Action Stations and a Harbour Tour is made even more special when you visit during A Victorian Festival of Christmas.

Pick up last minute presents or treat yourself at the Christmas Market, stop for some refreshments at Fagin's Real Ale Tavern, wander along Dickensian-style snow covered streets, ride the traditional carousel, take the children to visit a traditional Father Christmas (dressed in green), enjoy the stage show and a wonderland of Victorian characters and entertainment.  All this and free entry to the amazing historic ships and museums makes this an incredible festive day out.
