Afternoon Tea for Two Experience at the Mary Rose
Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays

 

Enjoy a unique experience at the Mary Rose museum this summer with an afternoon treat with amazing views from our VIP balcony overlooking HMS Victory and Portsmouth Harbour - you may even catch a glimpse of one of the famous aircraft carriers if they are in port. 

Your afternoon will begin with a delicious high afternoon tea on the balcony, followed by a guided tour. Discover the largest collection of Tudor objects anywhere in the world, and marvel at Henry VIII’s pride and joy, his beloved Mary Rose.  She lay under the Portsmouth Sea for 437 years before being raised, treated, and conserved into the awe-inspiring piece of Portsmouth history you see today.
