Gallery 7
10 October 2013
A visit to Portsmouth Dockyard to see the NEW building housing the
Mary Rose.
The ship is viewed from three different levels with each level also depicting what was on the area you are you are looking at.
All item on display were recovered from the ship and are VERY well displayed.
Each level also has a separate area that tell the story of the Mary Rose and again actual ship items on display.
The views of the Mary Rose are spectacular from each of the three levels and a bonus is a lift that has a panoramic window to see the ship from a different angle.

Also well worth seeing are HMS Warrior and HMS Victory.
There are also many building containing Royal Navy exhibits, places to eat, gift shops, harbour tours and activity centres.
I also visited an excellent second hand shop with many navy oriented items for sale where the owner was open to reasonable offers for items on sale.
A GREAT DAY OUT.

A second visit to the Historic Dockyard at Portsmouth was made on
26 March 2014

The Submarine Museum is situated at Gosport, Hampshire and VERY well worth a visit if you are in the area.
HM Submarine Alliance has been fully refurbished and is a tribute to all who made and restored her.
An amazing walk through this submarine boat.
The Museum also houses Royal Navy number one submarine - Holland 1.
The display also includes a midget submarine and an X-craft HMS X24.
Many submarine related items are on display over the sight with the highlight being a Polaris Rocker and a guided Tomahawk Missile.
