Mary Rose (Portsmouth)

The Mary Rose is one of the many maritime attractions in the naval city of Portsmouth in Hampshire.

It can be seen in the historic Royal Dockyard.

The Mary Rose was Henry VIII's flagship, and named after his sister. In 1545, he watched, helplessly, from Southsea Castle as the ship sank in Spithead.

Millions remember the raising of the Mary Rose, much of which was shown live on TV, from the sea bed in 1982.

The ship is now housed in a specially built dry dock, with a constant supply of water to keep the great oak hull preserved.
