The Mary Rose

One of the main reasons to go to Portsmouth was to see the Mary Rose.

The building might look rather bland on the outside, but the Tudor warship and the way it is displayed surrounded by objects retrieved from the wreck is truly spectacular.

Some of these pictures were taken from a glass-walled lift that ascends at one end of the museum giving superb views of the ship.

It will become even more spectacular inhopefully 2016, when because the ship will be completed dried out and preserved, they will be able to fully open up the views of the ship.
