The UK is fortunate that it has the means and opportunity to preserve such incredible artefacts from its history to share across the generations. You can buy a visit guide. We didn't this time but it might be worth doing so as visitors are self-guided...More

A much bigger ship than the victory and amzinf to see the differance within not that many years. Unlike the Victory there is no audio guide which would have been very helpful

Excellently restored warship from the mid 19th Century. Several decks contain various artefacts including cannons, firearms and other day to day items.

Very elborate and very well preserved ship. It still has the instruments of ships punishment and artifacts of life at sea and a first rate ship of war. Beautifully restored and kept.

What a fantastic old ship walking around one can think of the seamen of old who lived and died on her. Be prepared to be very bendy when aboard, there is not a lot of height below decks, all the seamen must have been shorter...More

Queen Victoria era ship that was converted from sail power to steam power. Although it never really saw any real duty, it is a great way to see the transition of engine powered ships.

The Warrior was the RN's first iron-hulled, armoured battleship. Despite bristling with weapons it never fired a gun in anger. It's been beautifully restored and well worth taking the time to see. I had a very pleasant light lunch in the cafe amidships.

A stunning ship from 1860, this Victorian armoured warship was the most powerful and feared of its day. Can be visited on a combination ticket to save money. Located in Portsmouth historic docks. A must.
