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

The Warrior is restored to all her former glory. This is. Glittering example of Victorian maritime technology and naval prowess.it is a wonderful boat to wander around and enjoy and imagine what it must of been like under sail or steam.

We found HMS Warrior is really worth a visit,apart from being huge you get so much freedom to wander around.There is a ticket that you can buy that will give you access to loads of attractions in the dockyard for 1yr,which includes HMS Victory,The Mary Rose museum plus lots more. It's a lovely ship to walkabout on.

I use the expression White Elephant because this ship never saw active fighting service because by the time it was launched Britain was not at war with anybody, and before its services were required as a fighting ship it had sadly become obsolete. Other uses then followed of course. But it is a most magnificent example of British design, invention,... More

I have visited HMS Warrior many times - As part of the Victorian Christmas and Stargazing events as well as the Dockyard Ticket. Beautifully restored and atmospheric well worth a visit. The size and weight of the vessel makes you wonder how they ever got it moving. A few steep stairs to negotiate so not for everyone but a wonder... More

What a fantastic ship. The tour was informative and fun. We were on it for ages. The level of detail in the restoration was amazing and for me is the stand out exhibit on the entire site.

Fantastic visit to Warrior. Very interesting, easy to access & walk around. So much to see & wonder at. Enthusiastic knowledgeable guides to answer all your questions. Left amazed at British engineering & ship building in 1860. Brilliant, best of the 3 ships visits

We spent 5 hours at the dockyard. HMS Warrior was fascinating, the first and last of it's kind. Iron hulled with a wooden figurehead. The kids got to lie in a hammock and loved clambering about on the viewing galleries strung above the deck.
