It was all very well set up at the venues of the Historic Dockyard with volunteers and staff in abundance. All friendly and so willing to help. I visited 3 sites and must admit , as it is November and shorter days ,I did run out of day light and hence time. There are plenty of activities to keep children focused as well. So a place for all age groups. It says opening at 10.00am. It would be wise to arrive on time as there is just so much to see and experience. Many Thanks to all who work so hard at making this happen. I must return !!!

The Mary Rose exhibition is excellent. The Victory is interesting. Didn’t actually have time to see everything as we arrived at 10.30 and by 3.00 pm we had still only seen The Mary Rose and The Monitor - that’s how good it was. So the following day (as we had bought Ultimate Experience tickets - valid for a year) we headed to Gosport’s Submarine Exhibition - not quite as interesting as Portsmouth but well worth the visit. Tickets appear initially expensive but since they are valid for a year, and after two different visited we still haven’t seen everything - so will be back they’re looking like a good investment. Loved it!

I spent 4 consecutive days at the Historic Dockyard. It was a stunning, wonderful experience. Admiral Nelson's Victory, the Harbour tour and the Submarine Museum were the most exciting for me. On the Warrior a sailor showed me how to shoot with a cannon. Lovely crew. I had delicious lunch in the Restaurant next to the souvenir shop and I had palm reading too. I had fun 4 days! I will repeat it for sure. Thank you!
