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

This is a magnificent ship dating from the 1860's , the first iron-hulled warship and was the pride of Queen Victoria's fleet. It was powered by steam and sail, a magnificent site in full sail. After languishing for many years it was restored and returned to Portsmouth as a ship museum and monument to naval history. The crew of approximately... More

Interesting to see a different kind of ship in the historic dockyard and the fact that this Victorian vessel was both steam and sail powered was great to see. Make sure you visit the depths and see those huge pistons going round. Worthwhile visit as part of the Historic Dockyard fee.

Visitors are left to scramble over most of the ship, which is fascinating, but would be too challenging for some people due to the steep companionways with rather flimsy rope handles.

This was the Highlight of our trip. Such a Beautiful ship and amazed that it was never used in Battle although at the cost of it and how it was fully loaded and ready for War possibly makes it still there for us to visit today. Not as Small as the HMS Victory to Go Walk around so the Lower... More

Saw this ship as a wreck in Hartlepool many years previously. Now a beautiful example of caring restoration. Go down to the engine room and see where the fires were stoked to drive the steam engines.

Having visited HMS Victory and The Mary Rose, this was third on our list of "must-sees". It doesn't disappoint. As with HMS Victory, you can climb all over the ship (and unlike Victory, it seems to suffer less from those interminable school groups!). The only part our 9 year old daughter didn't like was the boiler room, deep in the... More

The highlight of my trip to Portsmouth. HMS Victory might be the most famous attraction in the dockyards but visiting Warrior was something unique and special. Loved my visit. So much history, such an amazing ship brought to life. Could not recommend enough.
