The price put my wife and I from actually visiting this ship. Portsmouth Harbour is much better value

Recommended to us, this was far better than what I expected. Great learning experience. Got here early morning for opening and it was nice a quiet and easy to park the car. (you will get some money back for parking when buying your ticket). I recommend going and experience it your self.

The ship was very interesting and a good day out can be spent on the ship and surrounding harbour. There was plenty to read in order to learn about the history of the ship and many decks to explore. The café stops serving breakfast at 11am and my husband was extremely unhappy that he could not get a bacon sandwich... More

Entered at 11.00 a.m. came out at 3.00 p.m.!!! So much to see and take in !!! Totally brilliant experience and so glad to have been given a ticket which enables you to return again and again for up to twelve months. Encourage everyone to visit this great ship. Cruising in the early 1800's was very different to today !!!... More

Wow! We can't wait to go back! Our first surprise was finding out our ticket gave us entry for a year - brilliant value considering it only cost £15! We would've paid more!! Our second surprise was before we got on to the ship, a member of staff heard us telling our nearly 3 year old not to touch anything,... More
