Although other Naval attractions get most of the attention to visitors around Gosport and Portsmouth, Explosion! is definately worth a visit. Good spacious car park on site, welcoming staff with great knowledge and a delightful cafe as well.

This is very good value for money especially if you get the combined ticket which includes a boat trip to the Submarine Museum & HMS Alliance and over to Portsmouth and back. If you don't manage to fit everything in you can continue where you...More
