Of course a new exhibition with that title had to open on Trafalgar Day.

Hours: Open daily, 10.00-17.00 (last entry 16.30)

Location: National Maritime Museum, floor two

Admission: FREE

I’m curious to see if/what new aspects of “Nelson’s Navy” will be presented. And I’m looking forward to the “weird and wonderful” Nelson memorabilia; it will be difficult to top some of my past finds…

There are various activities and events hosted in connection with this exhibition, so have a look around the NMM.

And later on I’ll do the usually Collingcount (it’s a drinking game – have one every time Collingwood should be mentioned and isn’t.)
