Have your say

A SUMMER ticket which brings together many of the Royal Navy themed attractions in the area has been so popular it is to be extended beyond the holiday season.

The Historic Dockyard’s Big Ticket gives visitors access to the dockyard, the Royal Navy Submarine Museum, and Explosion Museum of Naval Firepower in Gosport for only £2 more than a standard ticket.

It also includes a tour of the harbour on the waterbus, and so far 12,000 visitors have taken advantage the tickets.

As a result those at the dockyard have decided to extend the offer to September 30.

Jacquie Shaw, of Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, said: ‘This ticket offer has proven popular beyond our expectations, offering exceptional value for money and time.

‘It’s a great way for locals to get acquainted, or reacquainted, with the museums across the water in Gosport, as well as providing a great experience for those visiting the city.’
