About HMS Victory

This is the ship that could rightly claim to be the pride of Britain's Naval forces. She is Nelson's flagship, H.M.S. Victory, the World's oldest commissioned warship, which remains more or less as it was at the Battle of Trafalgar. After seeing almost 220 years of continuous service, the Victory remains at Portsmouth's Royal Naval Dockyard, she is still manned by Officers and Ratings, and today she fulfils both practical and ceremonial roles for the Royal Navy.

H.M.S.Victory is beautifully preserved, her flowing lines impress all who visit her, she is at once the picture of amazing gracefulness with an artillery that made her the ship that ruled the high seas and gave Admiral Lord Nelson his triumphant, final victory. Her Georgian fighting prowess is the stuff legends are made of, at Trafalgar she had 100 guns and a crew of 800 men. Victory was one of the largest warships the Georgian navy sent into battle.

Historically, the ship took over six years to build, during this time the wood from over 6,000 trees was used of which 90% was oak. She was launched in 1765 at Chatham Dockyard and was commissioned in 1778. In terms of today's value, the estimated building cost of Victory would be a staggering fifty million pounds-at the time she was built costs amounted to £63,175.00.

Victory is now famous world over as a museum, visitors can see relics of Admiral Nelson and his navy as well as model ships and magnificent figure-heads. The ship combines her role as museum with that of the flagship of the Commander-in-Chief of Naval Home Command.

This historic ship offers everyone a fascinating visit, it is thrilling to explore at close quarters how it was that Nelson's tactics won the Battle of Trafalgar, thus making Victory and the British Navy the envy of the world.
