Very different but with the History and Pre-Dinner drinks on the top deck in the Sunshine it made for some fantastic photos.The meal and reception is down to the first deck and with all the Gun,Swords,etc it makes for a Great night. The only... More

This is the restored Victorian-era ship that was Britain's first iron-clad. Standing on the deck you realise how big it is and can imagine what it would have been like in a heavy sea. As it is a mix between a sailing era and a modern ship there is less in the way of central superstructure so you can stand... More

We enjoyed our entire visit to the Portsmouth Dockyards, HMS Warrior and HMS Victory. The base was clean and easy to navigate, the volunteers extremely helpful and knowledgeable, the ships were simply awe inspiring and the wait was not long at all.... 10 minutes for each. The ships were immaculate and in the midsts of tremendous historical research and repair... More

Absolutely and truly awe inspiring ship. You can rattle around this huge beast of a ship from belly, below the waterline, right up to the top decks. She has been so well preserved and the volunteer/staff are so knowledgeable and keen to import their knowledge that the whole experience is just so incredible for all ages.

Beautifully restored, Warrior has had an interesting past, and the exhibitl are great and interactive without being 'digital'. For example, they have rifles and pistols which you can hold and appreciate how heavy they were. Everyone can get on to the top deck, but sadly not possible for the less able to get below decks due to steep stairs.

We spent quite a lot of our time visiting HMS Warrior - there are few areas of the ship that are not open to the public and it was very interesting to see all the living and working spaces of a warship from this period.
