Very enjoyable tour. Lots of steep stairs, but that was expected. So realistic and informative. Well worth the admission fee.

Great place for a photo op off the stern which is very close to the London bridge. Plan on at least 2 hours to see it all. There are dozens of steep (and slippery) ladders so wear athletic shoes. I would not bring kids under 6 years of age.

I loved the Ship, the history, most notably the exterior, with the views across the Thames, excellent. ....but I got lost and found signage problematic inside. I get the feeling I may have missed some areas judging by some photos on this site. I didn't like the stairs either but then again its a ship. you can't expect marble staircases,... More

I really enjoyed our visit as it brings the history of our country to life and the difficult conditions the men had to live in

took my 81 year old cousin and wife on November 11th - very interesting especially the sailors stories, the prison cells and the Artic convoy area. Lots of steeps - but they both managed them apart from going down to the engine room. My only complaint is there are a lot of different deals on line from Tesco vouchers to... More

An enjoyable and interesting visit even though this would not have been my first choice of attraction to visit in London. A good audio guide is provided free,and there is lots to see. The displays about life on board were very good, as were the exhibits on Life at war and Life at sea. I was particularly interested to see... More

This is the real deal, and a great exhibit. The small hatches and steep stairs can be tricky when wet so best to go on a dry day ( if that's possible in England lol ), but it gave a good idea of how living aboard a battleship could be, as well as a good look into the history of... More

I have spent a day in London and this ship was the best to see for me. In the price of the ticket you get an audio guide, there are a total of 30 points were you can stop and lisen in. It is very easy to spent 2-3hour or even more on the ship. As far as I can... More

Loved the whole experience and boy do we owe a debt to every Serviceman no matter where. Freedom we have now is down to them.

I took my son at his request. It was the first time that I had been back since I was roughly his age. I could only remember the large gun turrets! An interesting exhibit to wander around and to try to imagine what it would have been like on the arctic convoys.
