Portsmouth Naval Base Property Trust

About Us

The Portsmouth Naval Base Property Trust is a charitable property company responsible for the conservation and re-use of the buildings in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and at Priddy’s Hard in Gosport.
As such, we are uniquely positioned and tasked with the care and curation of buildings and spaces associated with the Royal Navy around Portsmouth Harbour. As this is our primary purpose, it is also our primary concern.
We curate Portsmouth Historic Dockyard as a welcoming destination and work to strengthen its position as the historic quarter of the city, anchored by key tenants and partners with whom we have a symbiotic relationship. We undertake to break down the walls and create a living breathing dockyard.
We are working to develop Priddy’s Hard into a thriving mixed-use community, acting as a catalyst for regeneration along the Gosport waterfront.  Anchored in the heritage of the site, we will open it up to generate income and activity for the area.
