Portsmouth is already a popular stop for visitors to the southern English coast, and houses an exciting display of ships in its Historic Dockyard. Visitors can see The Mary Rose, a beloved ship of Henry the VIII, which was resurrected from the sea, and the HMS Victory, which was the ship captained by Lord Admiral Nelson during the Battle of Trafalgar, where he was fatally wounded.
