I've been dumped with the task of planning a day out from a Reserves (Army) camp, and Portsmouth / Gosport is nearby where we'll be.

I was taken round the SETT tank a couple of years ago when I was in the area by a member of the ninja-parachute-rescue-people, but have heard a rumour its now closed, and that would seem to be backed up by a quick search on here ....

So ......

1) Is it gen, no wah closed?
2) If it's not, has anyone any ideas who might be able to show around 30 guys round
3) If its closed, has anyone got any interesting potential visit ideas in the area? (Navy related, I can google "portsmouth attractions" myself!)


SETT is still running but doesn't do pressurised 30m ascents anymore. Write to the Cox'n at SETT for any enquiries(it's not privately operated...yet!!). If it's a no go then take them round the Submarine Museum, there's also the RM Museum and D-Day museums at Southsea plus Pompey dockyard.

If you like things that go bang (as your perce) there's Explosion at Gosport.
If museums aren't your thing just take them on a pub crawl from the Hard up through town and on in to Southsea.

I think most of the museums are free entry on production of your military ID card but I'd check before you front up.
