HMS King Alfred

HMS King Alfred (Portsmouth)

HMS King Alfred is the Royal Naval Reserve unit associated with Portsmouth.

Located on Whale Island in Portsmouth, and commissioned in 1994, HMS King Alfred is one of the largest units in the country.

Being in the heart of a naval city gives HMS King Alfred reservists excellent opportunities to see the work of the Royal Navy first hand. Our Reservists also get to use the tremendous facilities we have locally.

HMS King Alfred is located on Whale Island which is just off the M275 next to Portsmouth Continental Ferry Port.
