Part of the Historic Dockyard experience

Enthralling trip through Britain's Naval history. Best bet is to visit the Historic Dockyard where you can reach the Submarine Museum by ferry.

I cannot praise this experience highly enough. What a privilege to be able to see inside a Cold War-era submarine, and hear about life on board from submariners who served on her!

We live in Gosport and have a Portsmouth Dockyard pass which is due to run out so decided to visit the submarine museum before it does.

Travelled across the harbour from Portsmouth dockyard, which is a great way to arrive at the museum. A well presented history of 'the submarine' and the life of a submariner

This section of the dockyard is accessible via the waterbus service from the main dockyard. There are two submarines within the museum building, including the Holland 1, the first submarine used by the Royal Navy, which you can walk around the outside, and go into part of the interior.
