COVID-19

Portsmouth Historic Dockyard

We’ve swabbed the decks and are ready to welcome you back on board!

The big news is that not only are we re-open, but we are also re-opening in collaboration with the Mary Rose Museum!  AND with our new exciting ticket offer, which will enable visitors to explore all of the dockyard’s extraordinary ships galleries and maritime experiences with one, simplified ticket.

Any visitors who already hold a 12 month ticket for Portsmouth Historic Dockyard or the Mary Rose Museum, which is still valid, will receive an extension reflecting the same amount of time that the site has been closed.

You will need to register for this extension online, prior to booking a time-slot to visit. Any visitors whose ticket expired during the closure period will also receive an extension that will start from the day the site closed and will run until the expiry day of your ticket. So if you had 30 days still to run on your ticket, 30 days will be added to it, from our reopening date.

As well as the new Ultimate Explorer ticket now including the Mary Rose, visitors to HMS Victory will be able to view the ship like never before. You will now be able to experience the NEW: HMS Victory Under Hull Walkway. For the first time ever they will be able to descend into the base of the dry dock and view the 3600 tonne ship from below.

Unfortunately, Actions Stations, the Horrible Histories Pirates exhibit and the Victory gallery will remain temporarily closed due to government restrictions, and the Waterbus Service will also not be running for your safety. If you have a 12 month ticket for these attractions, you will be able to choose another attraction of your choice when you to visit.

When you decide to visit us, your safety and enjoyment is our number one priority, which is why we will be asking ALL visitors including 12 month ticket holders and members to pre-book your tickets and time slot.
