What people are saying about Portsmouth, UK

The experience of the visit to the museum was very good but there was confusion when we collected the tickets. Although I had the QR code the terminal would not read it so we were given general entry tickets for any vessel at the booked time.

Thsi was my second visit in recent years to the Mary Rose - such a wealth of everyday artefacts from the 16th century! Cookig utensils, tools, books! The pocket sundials in particular. The building is itself a wonder.

Clear display with a variety of information and activities for 5 year olds to 75 year olds. Great fun having a workshop with Henry V111. Very friendly helpers throughout the exhibition

My only difficulty was the extreme darkness. on entering the. first stage in the tour. Otherwise an excellent experience throughout.

We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, it was stunningly displayed, looking into sailors lives over 500 years ago.
