My favourite attraction at Portsmouth Historic Dockyards

Fascinating! Its amazing how inefficient steam engines were by comparison with today's ships. How did they ever get that massive two bladed propeller in place?

I thought the system of flags was very interesting and so too was the model of the steam piston system. More would have been gained if i had read the handy guide to the ship. There is an audio guide system but it does not seem to be well advertised or explained.

Our tour around HMS Warrior 1860 was part of a long-awaited sightseeing tour of Portsmouth which we had to put off from September 2014. It was worth waiting for and a bonus after seeing HMS Victory. The engineering and attention to detail in the construction of the ship was amazing, and our visit brought to life what it must have... More

Wonderful like all other areas of the dockyard. The level of attention to detail is incredible as was the information provided.

Walking through the ship gives an idea of the challenges our fighting forces faced in the "good old days". The ship is well restored and comprises several decks where you are free to roam. If you have questions there appeared to be plenty of experts around the ship available to answer questions.

Warrior is a truly great example of Victorian engineering; she is a truly beautiful iron--clad fighting ship. Amazing to walk around, spend time soaking in the atmosphere. A really great way to spend some quality time with a grandson who loves history.

Everyone knows HMS Victory but I knew almost nothing about HMS Warrior when I went aboard. Wow! Everything is very well presented and it was so interesting that it's at least as enjoyable as HMS Victory in terms of being a tourist attraction. Highly recommended. I was there within a general admission ticket for Portsmouth Dockyard.

I so enjoyed just being able to wander around and explore at my own pace. So little restricted you could get such a feeling for the ship and life on board.

The ship is great but there were too few guides to ask questions and to learn what it was like on the ship.
