date Visited 25th July 2019

Another visit to the historic dock yards in Portsmouth. It’s well worth the trip even thou it’s a little on the expensive side at £39 each and bloody £9 for car-parking.  We were lucky this time around as we see the huge new aircraft carrier HMS queen Elisabeth. Also on this trip we visited the submarine museum in Gosport docks across the water. After we had finished in the dockyards we had a nice pint in a pub on the water side.

It is managed by the National Museum of the Royal Navy as an umbrella organisation representing five charities: the Portsmouth Naval Base Property Trust, the National Museum of the Royal Navy, Portsmouth, the Mary Rose Trust, the Warrior Preservation Trust Ltd and the HMS Victory Preservation Company. Portsmouth Historic Dockyard Ltd was created to promote and manage the tourism element of the Royal Navy Dockyard, with the relevant trusts maintaining and interpreting their own attractions.
