Horrible Histories: Pirates
Now on  - Dec 31, 2020

If you love the TV show Horrible Histories, designed to introduce kids to the importance of historical events, you'll love this live edition with a pirate theme! Stuff your mind full of stories starring blood, battles and black eyepatches. Become a pirate at your peril, command a ship on the high seas, get your head around some seriously gruesome pirate stories and play on a host of interactive displays. It's horribly fun, and, even more horribly... it's educational!


There are ships, submarines, physical challenges, simulators and more at the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. This ticket gets you access to the site for a whole year!

Take a harbour tour for the history of Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, and amuse the little ones with hands-on activities at Boathouse 4, built at the start of WWII.

Keep the whole family's adrenaline pumping with navy-based physical challenges, simulators and technological experiments in Action Stations - an interactive indoor adventure housed in Boathouse 6.

At The National Museum of the Royal Navy, witness a huge bronze cannon lifted from the wreck of HMS Victory 1744, the predecessor to Nelson's famous flagship.

With access for a whole year, take your time and sail in and out of 11 maritime attractions at your leisure!

We took our grandsons there during the summer holidays and they loved it, especially the submarine. We will be going back again soon.

Great visit just jot enough time to see everything. Plan on a really long day or at least a day and a half for the full ticket.
The staff was so good, friendly and knowledgable
