Experience the Victory Room

Down in the cockpit, Lord Nelson was surrounded by his men on the dark evening of October 21st, 1805 in the final hours of the Battle of Trafalgar. The cannons were still roaring around the ship when he took his last breath, his spine shattered by a musket ball.

You can see The Battle of Trafalgar by J.M.W Turner, the painting at the top of this piece, at The National Gallery, Trafalgar Square. However, there are direct links to this historic event, to this great vessel, muchcloser to home…

The HMS Victory was Lord Nelson’s flagship, carrying 116 guns and a crew of 960 men. The ship is now berthed in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and is undergoing extensive restoration.

The Victory Room

Wood removed during the restoration work has been salvaged and some of it can be found in our Victory Room, where it forms the top of our 10’ x 4’ Victory table. Scorch marks, repairs, all are visible on the planks of mighty English Oak. What stories could this fantastic table tell?

To hire the Victory Room in the Megaro Hotel for your own private event, please contact our events team. We guarantee you’ll have your own tale to tell…
