What fantastic condition HMS Warrior is in, it takes a brilliant photograph which will decorate my wall once framed. Well worth the time to visit

If you see HMS Victory, HMS Warrior is a must by way of comparison, and you'll be amazed at how different they are, although so close in time. As the tour of the ship is self-guided HMS Warrior would benefit from more signage giving more explanation about what the visitor is looking at. That's said. A great exhibit.

Amazing how big a ship she was. Some steps are steep so not so good if not steady on your feet but loved it myself.

Visited the Warrior as part of a 2 day trip to the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. Was a fantastic experience and a definite must if you're in the area!

When you visit Portsmouth you must take the tour round HMS Warrior. It is so well organised as they do not let too many people on at once. The children loved the tour and the helpful assistants.

An amazing vessel and so advanced for its time, the fact that the funnels could collapse when under full sail was astonishing. Rule Brittania!

Built as a deterrent for Queen Victoria for the wars against the French. This ship was a ground breaking design but within 10 years was obsolete as her design had... More

if you want to see a bit of British navy history, this is a must see as well; part of the nay dockyards area. Tours are self-guided but there are staff to assist throughout and each was very helpful and more than willing to answer any questions
