Are you over 60 and keen on walking and exploring? Take on a new adventure and get your step count up at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

We got together a team of active adults aged 60+ and Olympian Roger Black to help us develop a series of new walking routes around Portsmouth Historic Dockyard’s fantastic museums, and now you can try them out.

So grab your Ultimate Explorer ticket and discover new parts of our ships and museums whilst staying fit and healthy!

You can take on:

Trafalgar Trail
