Portsmouth Historic Dockyard
As the crow flies, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard is 20 miles east of Lymington (40 miles by car/train). There are many attractions in the dockyard including HMS Victory, the world’s oldest commissioned ship and HMS Warrior 1860, the world’s first iron-hulled, armoured warship.

The Tudor warship, Mary Rose, that captured the world's imagination when she was raised from the seabed in 1982 is the only sixteenth century warship on display anywhere in the world and the brand new Museum built around her will reunite her with many of her 19,000 artefacts and crew in a unique journey through Tudor life.
