Subject: HMS Victory new areas open to the public

A recent Yahoo article on HMS Victory's 'exciting transformation' opens up new areas to the public.


HMS Victory has been repainted in her original colors and the route for visitors around the ship has been redesigned and expanded. Visitors will be able to 'follow in Nelson's footsteps' enabling major areas to be open to the public for the first time. The public will now be able to ascend to the Poop Deck to view the surrounding area of thye Portsmouth Historic DYd, walk around Nelson's Great Cabin and that of Captain Hardy's. The Orlop Deck has been simplified to prevent over-sentimentalizing the legend of Nelson with Devis' painting 'The Death of Nelson' removed for conservation and display off ship. Another area would be the carpenter's store where visitors can learn about the toll the Battle of Trafalgar had on the ship. The length of the visitor route has been increased almost 80%.
