Events in London – 7 May

Need some inspiration for 7th May? Admiral Nelson’s flagship HMS Victory was launched on this day in 1765, so how about taking a day trip to Portsmouth Historic Dockyards to see it? It sounds incredible, but the ship still survives today and you can stand on the exact spot where Nelson was shot at the Battle of Trafalgar.
