*Single Attraction Ticket – Portsmouth.
The Mary Rose was a ship in Henry VIII’s navy, which he had built when he came to the throne in 1509. In 1545 it was part of a defensive fleet when a large French armada attacked the Isle of Wight. For reasons unknown the Mary Rose capsized taking her crew of around 500 to the bottom of the sea, a couple of miles off the coast of Portsmouth. It is arguably more famous for the massive salvage operation which was televised in 1982.
*A Single Attraction Day Ticket allows access to 1 of 10 attractions including the Mary Rose Museum above.
