We often visit the various museums and maritime attractions in Portsmouth - especially at the Historic Dockyard. However, we rarely make our way across to Gosport, which is easily done on the short ferry ride. On Remembrance Sunday we went to see the RN Submarine...More

Served on a Sister Boat to the Alliance. HMS/M Auriga. Great to renew the memories. The museum on the top floor is fantastic. Right back to the days of the Hollands. Gives an insite into life in the early boats.

One of the best visits you can have. I've visited this attraction for more than 30 years. They reinvent every 10 years or so. Highly recommended

I had a spare afternoon so I took the opportunity to visit the museum, and was glad I did. The guided tour of the HMS Alliance is particularly worthwhile - the guide is an ex-submariner and had a wealth of knowledge of life on board...More
