We buy an annual family pass each year and definitely get our money's worth. There is so much to see and do here, but my kids' favourite (3 & 6) is undoubtedly Action Stations. They love the interactive games and the recent addition of the ninja obstacle course on the upstairs floor is smashing. The climbing wall is great fun... More

Neither me or my boyfriend are boat people but when you're visiting Portsmouth, you kind of have to visit the historic dockyard! We pruchased tickets before we went, getting a pass to all attractions in the dockyard for about £26 each. This works out so much cheaper than buying them individually (about £18 per boat I think). You can also... More

'Er indoors managed to get Dockyard Tickets on offer through a website that she found and I was amazed at how much there is to see in the Dockyard. Mary Rose, Victory to name but two and the recent addition of the WRNS exhibition was an added bonus on the latest visit. Well worth getting an annual Dockyard Ticket as... More

Over the years the presence of the RN has declined here but on the positive side the place has been rejuvenated as a tourist venue. There can be big queues at the ticket office so if you can buy tickets in advance then go for it! Staff are always friendly. Shops, restaurants, cafes as well as the historic ships will... More

This is well worth a visit. Only downside is expense so worth making the most of your visit. Most tickets are yearly so well worth price if able to make another or even several visits. All the attractions are well displayed with lots of info.

This is a great way to spend a day. Although not cheap, it is well worth the money. You have the choice to select what you see and pay for, or you can see every thing for a one off payment. It will take the day to see all. If you choose to just see one ship, give yourself plenty... More

Check and double check that there are not offers on places like Groupon and such like before you buy tickets here my husband spent £75 and on the same day I checked we could have got the same tickets for £48. Lesson learnt. Clear the dockyard wasnt the slightest bit interest in refunding the difference once they had our money.... More
