About

Follow a guide through the dockyards and learn of the ships who have fought — and sunk — protecting the British Isles. Discover famous vessels including Henry VIII’s flagship the ‘Mary Rose’, HMS ‘Victory’ — Lord Nelson’s flagship in the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 — and the 19th-century HMS ‘Warrior’. Climb the rigging, learn of life on the high seas and explore centuries of sailing history. Tour includes round-trip travel from your London hotel.

What to expect
  • Meet your own personal guide upon hotel pickup for the scenic drive from London to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. On arrival, you’ll get a private tour of several Royal Navy ships. Explore the decks of the HMS Victory, Lord Nelson’s flagship during the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Discover what life was like at sea for the sailors, then step foot aboard the Mary Rose, the flagship of King Henry VIII. Now a living museum filled with artifacts, this 16th-century vessel sank and was later raised from the seabed in the 1980s. Another highlight is the nearby HMS Warrior, a powerful, iron-hulled warship of the 19th century. If weather allows, tour Portsmouth Harbour by boat for a look at docked modern-day vessels belonging to the Royal Navy. You’ll have time to purchase fish and chips (own expense) before the return drive to London.

As fans of British Navy historical novels (Patrick OBrian, Hornblower, etc) and biographies of heroes like Nelson, we have always wanted to see Portsmouth and HMS Victory. This tour did not disappoint. Our guide, Kevin, was very well informed on not only the history of the port and Navy, but other cultural features of the area. He was an expert on logistics like where to go at which time for best viewing, etc. He guided us through the displays and threw in tidbits that only an enthusiastic fan of the sites would offer up. The HMS Victory was everything we imagined and the adjacent Mary Rose exhibit was an added bonus. It was a great day trip and we highly recommend Kevin and Ye Olde England tours.

Thanks for your great review. I'm glad that you enjoyed your tour so much; even though the weather is less good you get to see the amazing ships with hardly any tourists. Mark was so glad to know you had a good time as he has only recently joined the company so thank-you again.

You'll need more then a day to tour the Historic Area but lucky the ticket last for a full year, great value for cash.
It would be wonderful if the Chatham Naval Dockyard and HMS Belfast joined up as one or offering a 50% discount on each other's ticket entrance fee. Despite that it's a great place to visit. The food halls are also good value for you cash.
