Feel the sea breeze in Portsmouth Harbour

Portsmouth, Hampshire

Find your sea legs and obtain an unrivalled view of Portsmouth’s naval heritage with a bracing harbour tour.

There’s always something new to see in Portsmouth Harbour, home of the Royal Navy, and what better way to experience the sights than from the water? Portsmouth Historic Dockyard organises regular Harbour Tours accompanied by lively commentary, giving you a personal introduction to the range of historic buildings, ships, modern frigates and destroyers.

Don’t miss the £35m Mary Rose Museum housing the remains of King Henry VIII’s favourite Tudor warship, and leave time to explore the many decks of Lord Nelson’s HMS Victory.

You can also take a short hop across the harbour via the green Gosport Ferry, providing a superb vantage point for the iconic 170-metre Spinnaker Tower that dominates the Portsmouth skyline. You can even go aboard HMS Alliance, the only Second World War British submarine left in the UK.
