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

Overall excellent! Quick to get in, interesting to have a look around and the idea of having an on-board cafe is an excellent one - I didn't visit though, so I can't comment any further. I would recommend this over the other ship available in the dockyards. Still be mindful of steep ladders, low ceilings and uneven floors though, and... More

HMS Warrior is one of those attractions that I can never tire of visiting. I have been there for a ship visit, a wedding and Stargazing Live events. It is really atmospheric to go on the deck, especially with a glass of champagne. But really to learn all about the engineering to make the ship. I love all the historical... More

This large ship has numbered sections that match the headphone and tape set. Unfortunately the ticket staff didn't point this out and we missed the notice. Very interesting ship, well worth a visit.

I really enjoy history especially British Naval History so I was in my element here absolutely loved it. and kids love it too because they associate it with Pirates and what kid doesn't love Pirates. The only down side is it's Probably not a great place to visit if you're in a wheel chair or pushing a baby buggy.

Interesting visit, we were able to wander about quite freely and appreciate what it must have been like aboard such a striking vessel!

Family visit to Portsmouth and this is a superb trip. Kids loved it as there are some volunteers, dressed up in uniforms that give great insights into what life used to be on this ship. Ask them how the toilets worked (after lunch maybe as its pretty unique). Book online to avoid queues and get a better deal. If you... More

This great iron ship that never saw fighting was a testimony to the engineering of the industrial revolution. The guns were so advanced from those on HMS Victory and earlier also it was laid out so much more spaciously than the cramped conditions on Victory. We were fortunate to visit on a mid week day with very few visitors and... More
