HMS Victory - Sparring with Time

Andrew Baines, Head of Historic Ships was interviewed on BBC Radio Solent on Tuesday 10 May with an update on what’s happening with HMS Victory.


If you want to find out more, our Sparring with Time exhibition in the National Museum of the Royal Navy, across from HMS Victory, gives a fascinating insight into our plans for the ship and explains how our current work is just another phase in her incredible history. We are working with guidance from the UK’s Advisory Committee on National Historic Ships on this, the largest ever project on Victory and are determined to keep the ship open to visitors so you can watch this amazing story of restoration in action.
