Overview

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

Well preserved and interesting ship. Spent 90 mins wandering round and plenty to see. Details of the sailors’ catering particularly well done and interesting. Wouldn’t recommend for mobility impaired.

One side of the deck has a lot of restorative work behind white tents, but that doesn't detract from a really cracking exhibit. Walking the decks, and below, is really interesting, and they now have a cafe on board as well!

We only looked around from outside, as we did not have time to see everything in the dockyard but will return next time in the area. The staff seemed very friendly and the info on the quayside whetted the appetite for more.

Another beautifully restored and presented piece of Naval history. We could have watched the engines all afternoon - such precision - beautiful to watch.

I had been to the dockyard before but not had time to visit HMS Warrior. I was worried to see several canvas structures covering the deck and thought it might be closed. It's open ! And the really great things are inside below decks. It...More

Warrior is a great ship but even more impressive, when you enter inside. One of the few remaining ships built by the Thames Iron works company at Lower Lea. Must see.

The first metal dreadnought built in 1860 but outdated by 1885 !! Very well presented internally and externally. You really do see the whole ship in its full splendour.. Lots of steps for obvious reasons but fascinating. A must see.

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
