Situated within a working Naval Base, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard is the only place in the world to see the Royal Navy past, present and future.

Visit three historic ships, the Mary Rose, HMS Victory and HMS Warrior 1860, and get up close and personal as the history of the Royal Navy is portrayed through the stories from the ordinary men and women who have shaped the Navy's amazing history.

Take a trip around the harbour and view the modern Navy ships before paying a visit to the Action Stations and the National Museum of the Royal Navy, home to the World War II Enigma Machine which helped win the Battle of the Atlantic.

With a range of accommodation and great places to eat, treat yourself to a waterside break away from it all.
