What a wonderful vessel. Fantastic engineering. So well preserved. A must visit. The guides in costume are very happy to have a picture taken or answer your questions.

This is a complete contrast to the Victory. Large, spacious and in much better condition. Again some guides around to answer questions. Requires dexterity as there any several layers and steep steps, but nevertheless worth a stroll round as part of the group ticket

The ship is beautiful and very well presented, however it was lacking information, there was very little literature as you go around the ship as to what each space was. In order to get the most from your visit you need to go around with a guide. there are audio guides, but at a cost?

The local guides were very enthusiastic and friendly. Happy to answer questions on any subject. I will be returning to the area in September for further exploration. I thought the ticket pricing was expensive however the tickets we purchased allowed us to revisit anytime within the next 12 months which allows us to visit multiple attractions. For a one-off visit... More

It's a shame that most of the contents are reproductions, but it is very well presented, and gives a good insight into navy life at the time. The volunteers, dressed in period costume, and stationed around the ship were a mine of information. They bought the place to life.

Lovely old ship. The staff were excellent in giving you any information you required. Amazingly, once evening came, the noise of seagulls became alarmingly loud and we were told that this was a recording to frighten real seagulls away from the ship to stop any damage! It sounded very realistic!

Walking into history! Friendly guides eager to chat. Great exhibit. Well worth a visit. Wear fitted shoes. A number of ladder steps to climb up and down.
