Reasons for trip

We visited the historic dockyard in 2011 and had a wonderful day out. Previous visits have been good, but they have added to the facilites and made it into a wonderful day out. The all-day-ticket can be used on more than one day if you do not manage to see all the attractions in one day. Our day comprised a trip round the harbour to visit all the Naval ships in dock – that was very interesting and informative. We then went onto HMS Warrior, the oldest steel warship. The lovely old HMS Victory was next, with it's wonderful feeling of history. The spot here Nelson fell is marked and it really does fill you with awe to think of that. You can tour round all the various levels of the ship and they all have a different feel to them. The other item that amazed us was climbing up several staircases to a high sail loft to view a piece of the sail of the Victory, complete with cannon ball holes. You can also add a trip across the harbour to the Submarine part of the Naval Dockyard, but we did not have the ticket that allowed that tour. This is a museum that will interest all ages and because of it's location it will form part of a trip to Portsmouth that has much to offer. There are shops, cafes and toilets and I think disabled access is available, though I cannot be sure.
