A great example of big Victorian engineering. Warrior has the distinction of having the heaviest anchors ever to be raised by manpower alone at 5.6 tonnes. One at each end they could only be raised one at a time, each capstan having space for 100 men to provide the necessary muscle power. And that's before the ship has moved an... More

Well presented, informative and friendly staff. Able to really explore the ship and its history. Great with a ship-loving toddler! Well done for presenting and preserving its history.

I visited HMS Victory then the next morning we went aboard Warrior. It's really interesting seeing how the design and facilities of the warship had moved on since Victory's days. By this time they had engine power as well as sails, and the sailors were all volunteers rather than forced by the press gangs to join! It's an amazing ship... More

This ship is a delight to walk on with so much to see on board and the views are impressive of the harbour! You can see over to Gosport marina! Lots of history and artefacts waiting to be discovered and there are plenty of decks to keep you occupied!

No tour possible and had limited time on board. We were disappointed the ship never saw active duty but the restoration was superb. There were staff on hand to explain various aspects. Worthy of a visit on the combined Dockyard ticket.

Don't miss the warrior if you go to the Historic Dockyard at Portsmouth. I'd recommend you set aside a bit of time to view all its decks; I find it a rewarding trip each time I go there.

We made a full day of the Portsmouth Historic Dockyards doing the HMS Victory and Mary Rose Museum, then on to the Warrior. Beautiful. I think by the time we got to the Warrior we were already saturated with information and a bit tired, but we toured this immense vessel stem to stern and top deck to keel and loved... More

We only had time to visit one attraction in the historic dockyard in Portsmouth, so we chose ms Warrior. The price was pretty steep, with over £30 to pay for two adults. However, we were not disappointed. The ship is in immaculate condition, you can exactly imagine what it was like 150 years ago. The enthusiastic volunteers on board make... More
