New Horrible Histories exhibition opens at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard – picture gallery

Eye patches, wooden legs, parrots and cutlasses are all trademark tools for pirates – the ocean rebels many regard as the ‘rock stars of the seven seas’.

Now budding young buccaneers can grab this gear for themselves and get ready to learn thanks to the new Horrible Histories Pirates exhibition at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. Read more about the new exhibition here.
