Full description
Visit HMS Victory, the Royal Navy’s most famous battleship. Best known for her role in the battle of Trafalgar, the Victory is now the flagship of the first sea lord and a living museum to the Georgian Navy. New for 2021, HMS Victory Under Hull Walkway. Visitors can descend into the base of the dry dock and view the ship from below. The ship stands as a memorial to Vice-Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson, Britain’s greatest naval hero, and his victory at the battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Climb aboard HMS Victory and step back in time to the Georgian period. See the cabin where the Battle of Trafalgar was planned. Walk the once crowded decks where over 800 men lived, worked and fought. You can even stand in the spot where Nelson died. HMS Victory is currently undergoing conservation work but is still open, and visitors can experience Victory Live! to find out more about this conservation project.

Very poor road directions to car park . Sat nav useless. Good set up inside, food good and plenty of choices but paying for it in boathouse 7, if busy, is a nightmare. Very inefficient system. Otherwise excellent and instructive tour. Well presented and easy to follow.

Totally did not expect to WALK on the planks of the Victory. Awesome feeling being between decks and hearing the info from the various points. From being physically close to the cannons and the height between the decks. An experience which will remain with my 11 year old granddaughter for a long time, particularly the toilet procedure and locations. Actually worth another visit.

If you’re into history and the Battle of Trafalgar, this is the place for you. The guides are very helpful and pleasant. The ship is undergoing renovation at the moment but it doesn’t take away from the experience. There is a gift shop on the ship as well.
