In 1545, The Mary Rose sank outside Portsmouth Harbour defending England from invasion. In 1982, The Mary Rose made a spectacular return to the surface.
This year, experience The Mary Rose as never before.

Nowhere else can the lives of the men who worked and lived on board a Tudor warship be more truly experienced. Discover that history is only a heartbeat away at the Mary Rose.
