Enjoy a unique experience at the Mary Rose museum this summer. New for 2022 guests can now enjoy an afternoon treat with amazing views from our VIP balcony overlooking HMS Victory and out across Portsmouth harbour. Perhaps 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. This includes:
- Freshly brewed Fair trade ‘Down to earth’ coffee and selection of Twinings tea, including herbal infusions
- Finger Sandwiches - Coronation Chicken, Severn and Wye smoked salmon, free range egg mayonnaise
- Premium cakes, mini butter scones with clotted cream and preserve, mini fruit tartlets with fresh berries
- Still and sparkling water
Guests will then make their way down to the museum where their guide will take them round on 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 sea for 437 years before being raised, treated, and conserved into the awe-inspiring piece of Portsmouth history you see today.
