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

Great venue. Staff didn't seem interested after you've paid for the event or maybe had more important events to focus on. We had a good tour but I was mightily disappointed that we didn't have drinks on deck as arranged (weather permitting) and the weather was great. I would recommend the venue but make sure they deliver what they promised.

Plenty to see and do, all the ship is fitted out as a working ship the only one still a float. It's been restored to a very good condition well worth taking the family the kids will love it.

A fascinating piece of history. You can readily imagine how the old tars must have lived and worked. Recreated in exacting detail, this is a visit you can be sure you will remember.

A very interesting exhibit showing a different aspect of our naval history from the more well known Victory and Mary Rose

The whole historic dockyard is such a magnet for every age. This ship was ahead of its time and a true example of hybrid advancement. Which cars and buses are only perfecting now.

Fascinating to compare the warrior with HMS Victory. Beautifully restored and maintained and easy to imagine how intimidating it must have been. Clearly the nuclear deterrent of its day.

This was a really informative and interesting attraction, helped by very friendly knowledgable staff on hand to answer and questions you may have. Good value for money as we bought an all attractions ticket online before travelling. Well worth it. We enjoyed it immensely, even in the torrential rain!
