our new museum

Share your #TudorRose

Tudor RoseThe Mary Rose will be fully revealed in two weeks time, and to celebrate we want you to show us your Tudor Roses!


The Tudor Rose, formed from the Roses of York and Lancaster by Henry VIII’s father, Henry VII, is an enduring emblem of one of England’s most famous dynasties, and it appeared on many of the objects recovered from the Mary Rose, from large crests on the mighty bronze guns to tiny details on sundials.


We want you to share any Tudor Roses you may have seen on your travels, be they from a local Tudor site or in modern advertising, architectural features to art works. Whereever you see them, get a picture and post it onto Twitter, using the hashtag #TudorRose


At 5pm on Monday 6 11th July we’ll be picking the best one you send, and the lucky photographer will win this set of our Tudor Rubber ducks, including the mini Henry VIII Lipbalm!

Sorry, but if you work for the Mary Rose Trust or the National Museum of the Royal Navy, you aren’t allowed to enter the competition. We still want to see your #TudorRose though!
