As the UK’s premier destination for naval heritage, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard welcomes over 925,000 visitors, inspiring them with the stories of the men and women of the Royal Navy over the centuries.
The Mary Rose Trust has decided to move away from the combined ticket offer. As of 1 April, the Mary Rose has not been part of the All Attraction Ticket and requires an additional ticket which can be purchased from the Mary Rose website or bought on the day.
To help visitors understand this change we have stopped selling All Attraction Tickets and replaced them with a new 11 Attraction Annual Pass.
The 11 Attraction Annual Pass is by far the best value option, giving you unrivalled access to top attractions including HMS Victory and HMS Warrior, as well as Action Stations, the ‘Lucky Ship’ M33, The National Museum of the Royal Navy, BoatHouse 4, The Jutland Exhibition, Dockyard Apprentice and a 45 minute boat ride viewing the harbour from the sea.
Visitors can also enjoy the Royal Navy Submarine Museum and Explosion Museum of Naval Firepower in Gosport which are accessed by a complimentary waterbus. If you have limited time, we now offer any 1, any 2 or any 3 attraction tickets which are valid for a day only.
Enjoy our best value ticket and see 11 amazing attractions across Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. Leave nothing undiscovered with our annual ticket.
