Join Boundless on Saturday 28 September for a members’ day out at the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, home of the National Museum of the Royal Navy.

Portsmouth has been home to a British navy for over 1200 years and the Historic Dockyard brings this history to life through amazing interactive displays, historic ships and magnificent museums.

Get on board and explore real ships and submarines including the Royal Navy's most famous warship, HMS Victory, Nelson’s flagship for the Battle of Trafalgar.

Don’t miss out on your free members’ tour of HMS Warrior, the largest, fastest and most powerful warship of her day and the pride of Queen Victoria’s fleet. Your guide will give you an insight into what it was like to live and work on board and how the Warrior has survived nearly 160 years.

The Portsmouth Historic Dockyard members’ day ticket will also get you access to an amazing 11 attractions*, also including the National Museum of the Royal Navy Portsmouth, Action Stations, HMS M.33, harbour tours, Boathouse 4, the Dockyard Apprentice, Royal Navy Submarine Museum and the Explosion Museum of Naval Firepower.

Your ticket also includes a 45-minute harbour tour, one of the most popular things to do at the dockyard. This mini-excursion takes you around Portsmouth harbour and the naval dockyard providing an unrivalled insight into the modern Royal Navy, historical sights and great views of the Solent coastline.

Why not upgrade your ticket and include entrance to the state-of-the-art Mary Rose Museum – home of Henry VIII’s flagship and a unique glimpse into life in Tudor times. Upgrade your ticket to save 35% on public ticket prices!

Some of these attractions are based a short distance away from Portsmouth dockyard – a complimentary water bus takes you across the harbour from Portsmouth to the other attractions.

As with all our member events, the Boundless team will be there to meet you on the day and make sure you get the most out of your visit. Whether it’s fast-track entry, free guidebooks, entertaining the family, organising your tours and making sure you have all the information you need, we’ll do our best to make your day as enjoyable and easy as possible.

This Portsmouth Historic Dockyard member event will only be taking place on Saturday 28 September and tickets will not be available for any other date.

FAQs

Q

How can I get there?

A

By Car

The dockyard is centrally located in the city and is less than five miles from Junction 12 of the M27. Follow the brown and white signs to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

By Train

Travelling by train couldn’t be easier as the dockyard is only a three-minute walk from Portsmouth Harbour station. Turn right out of the station and you’ll see HMS Warrior in front of you.

Walk to the end of Portsmouth Hard Interchange and turn left towards Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. You should see Victory Gate in front of you.
