She was Britain's first iron-hulled armoured warship and the largest, fastest and most powerful ship of her day. The pride and joy of Queen Victoria's fleet. Powered by steam and sail. We were able to explore top deck and lower decks. They were immaculately restored.

The ability to see through the ship without restricted areas. Only difficulty was there was no guided tour to give you the full story of the ship on the day we were there.

The Warrior is fascinating if you're interested in naval history because it represented a key step from the traditional wooden hull first rater under sail to the steel Dreadnought type of battleship. Even if you're not interested in naval history, Warrior has been beautifully restored and is a fascinating bit of Victorian engineering. Warrior is a large ship and there... More

Did not know much about The Warrior, surprised of it's history. First iron ship built and I believe the only one in the world, blown away by the way this was built especially when it was built in Victorian times, the shear size of this ship, plenty of room on board to freely roam and explore yourself . Worth a... More

I grew up watching the Warrior being rebuilt in Hartlepool, but had not seen it since it's move South several years ago. It is interesting and certainly worth a visit.

Don't be disappointed that the fixtures and fittings on this historic ship are reproduction - it means you can explore freely and really get a feel for the different decks and their functions. Go down deep into the engine room, or explore the reconstruced cabins. Get a feel for the scale of the ship on deck and stare up at... More

Worth a visit on the combined ticket for the sheer size of the ship - however, it does not compare to the Mary Rose nor the Victory and somehow lacks a bit of soul.....I wandered around the empty ship with just a pamphlet and tried to work out where I was. Was unsure if I could go up and down... More

Well worth a visit on the historic boat. Until you get on board you don't appreciate the size. Excellently restored and a credit to all those involved. Even on a rainy day we enjoyed our visit.

Visited on a Dockyard day ticket. The new building houses so much more than the old, mores artefacts with good views of the ship. I found particularly good the simulations or how the ship would have looked in the day. Well worth a visit.
