  • HMS Victory's New Colours




    Visitors to the HMS Victory will be able to walk around Nelson's cabin for the first time, thanks to a major refurbishment.
    The multi-million pound conservation project has seen the 250-year-old warship repainted in its original colours and a new route for visitors open up.
    The public will now be able to ascend onto the Poop Deck to view Victory’s surroundings in the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, walk around Nelson’s Great Cabin as well as see Captain Hardy’s Cabin displayed for the first time as a working captain’s accommodation.

        The can't see any of the lower two gun decks guns. Have they been removed?

          Not as far as i know, going to have to pay a visit soon. The lower gun deck is about the only original part of Victory, and when i was last there a couple of years back, a section was rotten and in serious need of attention.

              Loved my 2007 visit to the Victory. Then the Admirality were using Nelson's cabin room as a place for meetings for the RN, and there were more than one high naval official making their way to it.

                        Bet they wished they'd thought of that for the Cutty Sark...



                        The long toll of the brave
                        Is not lost in darkness
                        Over the fruitful earth
                        And athwart the seas
                        Hath passed the light of noble deeds
                        Unquenchable forever.

                            Yeah, whenever I see anything that old made of wood, I have to bite my lip.
                            But this one looks very well taken care of, shored up around he stern and everything. It must be the very last S.O.L. anywhere in the world.

                            Our Constitution is still on the water, how much longer can it last like that?!?
