What we do
The Trust’s main function is that of landlord and guardian of Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. It is responsible for keeping the historic buildings in a good state of repair, for collecting rents and service charges from its tenants, and for refurbishing empty or redundant buildings for appropriate new commercial uses. This ensures that the historic buildings and structures are safeguarded for the enjoyment of future generations.
The Trust also owns and operates the Historic Dockyard Car Park, along with some retail units at Admiralty Quarter on Queen Street.
Two of the Historic Dockyard attractions – Action Stations and the Dockyard Apprentice Exhibition – are owned and operated by the Trust and it leases its landing jetty to Solent & Wightline Cruises for the provision of Harbour Tours.
