When it was built by the Royal Navy in 1860, it was at the cutting edge of technology, being one of the first armour plated iron hulled warships of their day. Ironically despite its name it never saw... More

A superb attraction. Get an idea of what it was like to serve in the Royal Navy during the Victorian era. Another part of Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

Being able to walk around on our own and take plenty of time. There are plenty of volunteers around though to answer any questions.

The evening event (a Sea Shanty Night) was hugely enjoyable with good food, plenty to... More

A pleasure to visit the ship that changed everything, it was the very first of the shape of things to come. The staff are lovely, my sweet old 'Gunnery Instructor' was brilliant bless him. Thanks from one old sailor to another.

Went to see this with my friends who came down for a visit, it was brilliant, it blew us away, there were people to answer your question they were dressed in the period dress, there was a lot to see that you just couldn't imagine, small sleeping areas, how heavy some of the things on board were, how ever did...

I visited the warrior during the victorian Christmas festival in Portsmouth historic dockyard. I found that the ship was not as interesting as I expected. I was with my 2 girls so was a bit rushed but my favourite part was having a cup of tea on there. It's definitely worth a look and I wouldn't take children as they... More
