A very expensive day, but amazing exhibits. It would be wonderful if there were some sort of price break for people who cannot return: we had one day in Portsmouth but our admission was the same as for someone who lived nearby and could make multiple visits for a year. The exhibits are spell binding, however, and we really enjoyed our day. We managed to visit the H.M.S. Victory, The Mary Rose Musuem, The H.M.S. Warrior, and we also did a harbour tour. Each was enjoyable and well done. We were very fortunate in that we didn't have to wait for anything other than about half an hour wait for the harbour tour. Had it been busier (there were lots of school tours), we might not have managed to fit 4 sites in. There is lots more to see in the Portsmouth Historic Dockyards and we would love to have been able to take more of the displays in but were delighted to have managed to fit in the Victory, Mary Rose, and Warrior, which is what we had wanted to see. Exceptionally well done. Our only regret is that the fire alarm went off (the school tours perhaps?) as we were nearing the end of our tour of The Mary Rose Museum so we missed the last part of the display and the gift shop. Washrooms seemed to be not readily available requiring long walks and they were hard to find, and one restaurant/tea room was shut down due to lack of power or hot water, leaving us with only an outside burger/hot dog stand, but our main goal was keep going to fit in as much as we could. This site is a must do if interested in naval history and sailing ships - absolutely spell binding!
