The prestigious nomination sees the museum go up against Buckingham Palace, Barcelona’s famous La Sagrada Familia, Rome’s Colosseum and Paris’ Eiffel Tower amongst others in the category.

The museum – which showcases the remains of Henry VIII’s most beloved vessel was finally finished to the public last July and has since become a tourism hit for the city.
