“Naval splendour & majesty”
Tour Highlights: The naval dockyards, HMS Victory battleship, The Mary Rose, D-Day Museum and the historic seafront, shopping and bracing sea air!
Still a vital naval port to this day, Portsmouth is a vibrant town, fascinating to those interested in British naval history and the D-Day invasion of WWII. Portsmouth has been home to the British Navy for over 500 hundred years and still is very much to this day. It is also a charming British seaside resort with a lovely pebble beach to explore.
We start our day at the historic naval dockyards, boarding HMS Victory, Admiral Nelson`s flagship from the Battle of Trafalgar of 1805. We then visit the Mary Rose, Henry VIII`s favourite battleship. Before lunch we have time to tour the extensive Napoleonic dockyards and Naval Museum.
After lunch we make our way on to the D-Day museum, perhaps visit the stores at Gunwharf Quays and take a boat tour of the harbour to see the current pride of the British Navy. There is always time for an ice cream before we make our way home.
As with all of our tours, if our suggested tours do not suit your specific requirements, please allow us to create a customised itinerary especially for you.
