Portsmouth Historic Dockyard – Royal Navy – HMS Victory

Victory Gate, HM Naval Base, Portsmouth, PO1 3LJ

The Royal Navy's Flagship HMS Victory is Britain’s most celebrated naval warship, an enduring memorial to Vice-Admiral Lord Nelson, and an icon of the Royal Navy.

To honour and celebrate her formidable history she has been restored in breath-taking detail to her Georgian colours, so much so you’ll almost believe that she could set sail today. Walk the same decks trodden by one of history’s most famous naval commanders, Horatio Nelson up until his untimely death at the Battle of Trafalgar, his last great victory.

But HMS Victory is more than just one story, with over 800 crew members living and serving together. Experience how they lived below decks, living and fighting during the height of Georgian navy. Just don’t try to eat a ship’s biscuit if you value your teeth!

With our informative hand-held audio guide, it’s never been easier to immerse yourself in this incredible ship.
