Trafalgar Night

Location: HMS Victory, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard 

Commemorate Nelson’s famous victory by joining us for this traditional naval evening onboard HMS Victory on Friday 18 October, Saturday 19 October and Friday 25 October, Nelson’s flagship; best known for her role in the Battle of Trafalgar.

Watch the parading of the beef with traditional drummers and raise a toast to Admiral Lord Nelson. The Lower Gun Deck allows guests the chance to dine at mess tables, where in the past the crew of Victory would have eaten their rations, slung between the 32-pounder guns. These were Victory’s heaviest guns, each weighing in at 3.75 tonnes.

Enjoy performances throughout the evening, ending with good, old sing along.

  • 7 pm - Boarding & reception drinks on the quarterdeck (weather dependent)
  • 8 pm - Dinner
  • 11.30 pm - Carriages
