England’s most notorious monarch, and the most famous of his wives, in rubber duck form? Who could resist these colourful representations of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn!
And no, her head isn’t removable…
Not actually from the 16th century, but these breathable bamboo socks, featuring Henry VIII and a somewhat familiar-looking ship, make a perfect gift for lovers of all things Tudor!
Produced locally by the Portsmouth Distillery, Tudor Gin is a smooth, rich, dry gin based on botanicals found Mary Rose, including Dandelion, Hazelnut, Hemp seeds and Cherry. With every bottle sold a generous contribution goes to the Mary Rose Trust, so you and your loved ones can get inebriated in the knowledge that you’ve done your bit to help preserve our heritage.
We always say that, while we do try and share as much or our story with you online, the best way to experience the story of the Mary Rose is to come and see the ship in person!
If you get a Portsmouth Historic Dockyard Ultimate Explorer ticket, you not only get the Mary Rose, but Lord Nelson’s HMS Victory, the Victorian steam ship HMS Warrior, WW1 vessel HMS M33 and the WW2 submarine HMS Alliance, as well as a plethora of museums and even a harbour tour! PLUS you can come back as many times as you want in a year – who wouldn’t want to find that in their stocking?
(Oh, and don’t forget to add a guided tour too!)
