Posted 13 June 2018 · Add Comment

A new exhibition will open at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Gosport on 15 June to mark 50 years since Britainís first at-sea nuclear deterrent.



'Silent & Secret' will explore the history of the British nuclear at-sea deterrent and reveal the challenging nature of working in these submarines.

The exhibition will highlight the experiences of those men who served and give an insight into life on board the 'Silent & Secret' Polaris submarines.

Visitors will be able to hear stories and see documents and personal possessions of those who served in the Polaris submarine fleet.

There will be opportunities to meet veteran submariners from the Polaris missions, as a number of former submariners volunteer as guides at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum showing visitors around the museum's most iconic exhibit - HMS Alliance, the only remaining British submarine from the World War Two era.

Entry to the Royal Navy Submarine Museum is included in an 11-attraction annual pass for Portsmouth Historic Dockyard which also includes entry to HMS Victory, HMS Warrior and a free waterbus linking the two sites across Portsmouth Harbour.
