Pompey

HMS Victory - Nelsons Flag Ship
Took the boys down to the Historic Dockyard at Portsmouth yesterday, had a great time, loads to do and see, we ended up buying a ticket that covered everything, as we figured we are only an hour away by train and we could get two or possibly three trips down there for the one ticket (the ticket is valid for 12 months from date of purchase), so rather than do everything in one day, we decided yesterday to get the ferry over to Gosport to the Submarine Museum, then after that the ferry again back to Portsmouth where we went on HMS Warrior (link here for more info), after this we wandered down to see HMS Victory, the oldest commissioned warship in the world and of course Admiral Nelson's Flag Ship, we decided that we would go on Victory at a later date as well as visit some of the other attractions like the Mary Rose museum etc when the place is not heaving with tourists.
