Portsmouth


1 - HMS Warrior (one of the first ironclad warships)


2 - Portsmouth was hosting some sort of Victorian Christmas Festival, but my main reason for wanting to go was to see the Naval museum, as well as to get a look at HMS Victory (Nelson's flagship at the battle of Trafalgar). The museum was a disappointing collection of slightly pointless trinkets, but the ship was well worth the visit.

4 - HMS Victory, looking rather good despite her age...

8 - The Victorian festival featured all sorts of costumed characters wandering about, as well as a few food stalls and things. Unfortunately the low light and rain hampered my photographic efforts.
