HMS Victory, Portsmouth, Hampshire
Here’s your chance to climb on board the Royal Navy’s most famous warship, HMS Victory, in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard where she’s been sitting since 1922. Best known as Vice-Admiral Lord Nelson’s flagship in the Battle of Trafalgar the ship now serves as a living museum to the Georgian Navy and a hand held audio guides give the visitor a fascinating insight into life on board in the Napoleonic Wars. You can even see the very spot where Nelson fell and uttered the immortal words “Kismet, Hardy”, and you can meet Hardy in his cabin and ask him questions. Now that’s what we call seriously interactive.
