Much more to see that my last visit , everything is well described and access made easier. Seeing the way the sailors lived in the actual ship is a great way to learn about and be proud of our maritime history.

We went here after visiting the Mary Rose and were expecting a walk through of the ship with not much else. In fact, you climb to the top of the ship and follow the directions down through the decks. It has been prepared extremely well...More

I expected a sea faring battleship to be quite big but I was amazed by how small it is. As you walk around and realise how many men lived in these cramped conditions you wonder how they and their fellow sailors survived let alone fought...More

Very impressive, not a history buff but amazing to experience the ship. Knowledgeable staff but could have done with an audio tour or info boards, in my opinion. Great experience.

I was a bit disappointed in the Victory. While the ship is wonderfully restored, the lack of signage makes one unsure of what one is actually seeing. Even the site of Nelson’s death is very easy to miss. That aside, the ship has very low...More

There is no tour. the price is difficult as entrance to the site is complicated. You pay for so many attractions once inside the museum. Pay for 1, 3, etc, etc. It has got quite expensive over recent years.
