Get ready for a bumper maritime weekend!
Visit Buckler’s Hard on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th July to climb aboard a full-size replica of Battle of Trafalgar’s HMS Pickle.
This period-perfect tall ship is a recreation of the vessel that brought the news of Nelson’s death back to Britain after the Battle of Trafalgar. Take a tour and chat to her crew about what life was like in Nelson’s Navy.
PLUS: on Sunday the Portsmouth Model Boat Display Team will pay tribute to HMS Pickle with a remote control model boat display featuring pyrotechnics! See miniature sailing ships take to the water and fire their canons, and then see incredible models up close in a static display. (The water-based display is subject to tides and conditions)
All displays and activities are included in your ticket to Buckler’s Hard, which also includes entry to the Maritime Museum and historic cottage displays.
