Have your say

Learn how the crew lived, ate and passed the time on board the Mary Rose, what caused it to sink and how important it was to Portsmouth’s history, as part of the Eye Opener Tours taking place every weekend this month.

During the 40-minute tour, follow a costumed interpreter who will literally walk you through pieces of history.

You’ll learn the story of the dramatic sinking of the Mary Rose and about the everyday life of the crew.

During the tour, you’ll visit the Mary Rose Museum, which allows you to explore the history of the famous ship.

The museum itself is a 19th Century boathouse and is surrounded by history.

The museum covers Henry VIII’s reign as King, and the impact the Tudors had on the 21st century.

Meet at the museum desk for the tours, which are held at 11am and 3pm on every Saturday and Sunday throughout January.

No booking is necessary and the cost of the tour is covered with your admission ticket into Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

Each tour will vary as the guides choose their own favourite subjects and have varied knowledge.
