Portsmouth Historic Dockyard Annual Pass and Chatham Historic Dockyard Annual Pass

 

The history of our navy is an incredible one, with some tremendous feats of courage.   Can you imagine what it would have been like to set sail on a ship when you are suffer from seasickness, even when your ship is still sitting in harbour?  Well, General James Wolfe was, and yet he still made it across the Atlantic to sail a fleet down the St Lawrence River in 1759.

Anyway, whilst we consider the awesome courage of Wolfe, there are a couple of memberships I wanted to tell you about which relate to historic dockyards - Portsmouth in Hampshire and Chatham in Kent.  They are available through BuyaGift.co.uk - and if you buy them before 31 Dec 2019, you can enjoy 15% off with BuyAGift!  Just use the code AHWBAG15 at check-out.

HMS Caroline is the sole surviving ship from the Battle of Jutland and she's been recreated to look and feel as she did in 1916.  Situated in Belfast,  you can tour the recreated cabins and walk along the decks where the ship's replica guns sit.  There are interactive exhibitions on board and a dynamic film depicting the drama and devastation of the battle so you can learn all about war at sea.
