NEW! THE POPPIES IN PORTSMOUTH
This cracking day out in Portsmouth, of equal interest to men and women, is available all year but if you come between 13 April and 24 June 2018 Wave -
Meet the Blue Badge Guide at 10.30am at Fort Nelson, just outside Portsmouth, to buy morning refreshments. Fort Nelson is one of five Palmerston Forts built on the summit of Portsdown Hill overlooking the Dockyard to guard it from French attack. Now part of the Royal Armouries there are great views over the city.
From 13 April to 24 June 2018 Wave: a poignant sculpture of thousands of individual ceramic poppies will spill over the forts walls. Wave formed the key dramatic element at the Tower of London in the autumn of 2014. This unforgettable sight is a beautiful way for your group to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War.

Our afternoon begins with a sailor’s eye view of the Historic Dockyard and the warships of the modern Royal Navy on an entertaining 45 minute Ships in Port Harbour tour. We might see the immense new aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth in her home port.
To round off a very memorable day out we are going to visit the rather handsome conservation area of Old Portsmouth to gaze out to sea from the Hot Walls where sweethearts have shed tears for departing lovers for hundreds of years.
There will be time at the end of the afternoon to buy refreshments (and even take a peek inside Portsmouth’s compact cathedral) before heading home at 4.45pm.
