Theirs was a love affair that scandalised society and continues to grip the imagination and this Valentine’s Day, 14 February, visitors to The National Museum of the Royal Navy in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard have a rare chance to get up close and personal to the betrothal ring Vice Admiral Lord Nelson gave to his mistress Emma Hamilton on the eve of his final departure from British soil.

Although the ticket will be in your name, all the gift recipient will need is the 6 digit order reference number from the confirmation email. They can bring this number along on their first visit. We will then print out the ticket on the day. At that point the ticket will be personalised to them - so they can use it for the next 12 months.
