As you arrive at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, the stunning sleek, black lines of Britain's first iron-hulled, armoured warship, take your breath away. Warrior, launched in 1860, was the pride of Queen Victoria's fleet. Powered by steam and sail, she was the largest, fastest and most powerful ship of her day and had a profound effect on naval architecture. Warrior was, in her time, the ultimate deterrent. Yet within a few years she was obsolete. Restored and back at home in Portsmouth, Warrior now serves as a ship museum, monument, visitor attraction, private venue and more. Open all year round, we invite you to experience her for yourself. Open daily from 10.00am except 24th, 25th & 26th December

This ship is well worth a visit. You can explore the entire ship from deck to deck with a large map. There are many guides on the ship, so any questions are answered for you. It's an amazing ship to visit.

Built in 1860. State of the art warship with both steam and sail. Redundant in 10 years. An eye opener. You get to go over 3 decks. Even my non nautical wife was impressed. Part of the historic port area pass. 28 pounds pricey but...More

Plenty of information, well detailed and we'll worth the visit. However the guides on there said they are being taken over by the same company who have the victory and are worried that a lot of the information will be removed as on the victory.

I know the gates of the dockyard close about 5 pm ish and I'm sure like most it will open at 10am. As a rule I always go with open from 10:30 and last tours are at 4pm in summer months. It has always worked for me
