When Nelson defeated the Spanish and French combined Armadas, he defeated the most powerful in its time, as this fantastic set of XVIII buildings confirm, Spanish industrial architecture, dwarfing anything the British could have built back then, in Portsmouth and surroundings (I mean XVIII century Architecture, not the wonderful Victorian examples in Britain). I suppose it was a fit of good luck... Please remember there was a British Armada that tried to invade Spain, that was defeated in Spain by Maria Pita and an army of women, after the Spaniards were prey of the weather, skillful Portsmouth's navy men, coordinated under Her Gracious Navy, the weather, and bad logistics. Allow me the childish joke, here is Spain we are waiting for the second rematch. A must, under any circumstance, for those interested in the Military History of the Western World, the navy, ships and the lot. Visit NAVANTIA Naval Construction Museum, in the vicinity, to have the whole lot of eighteen century walls, cannons, constructions and the lot.

This was a really amazing tour and well worth taking. We had to wait at the gate to get permission to enter and once inside we were escorted by an armed guard. Our guide was really knowledgeable and gave us the history of the Arsenal and how it was used also the fact that it was built on the other side of the bay at first but as they noticed it was soon being outgrown it was moved crossed the bay to a large site. The site also includes a marina with naval ships and ship building and maintenance areas. It would be a suitable tour for a lot of adults of not so good for children as you must stay within the group and our restricted due to their security.
