We took the little boat across the water from Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and then booked the tour of the submarine by an ex-serviceman with a twinkle in his eye. The old subs really were snug! There is plenty to see over the site and we started out by walking up to the torpedo buildings, which were quiet, and then working... More

Museum has been transformed since I first visited many years ago - excellent facilities. HMS Alliance is main attraction and our guide was a joy to listen to - so knowledgeable and informative and obviously proud to have served in the service. Take as many photos as you like - nothing secret there now! My wife is in a wheelchair... More

The submarine museum is fascinating. The restored sub Holland 1 is impressive and the museum exhibition very interesting. There's an activity area for children where they can pump water in an out of chambers turn valves etc. However, whilst quaint I don't think it will keep kids occupied for too long. The star of the show is obviously HMS Alliance... More

A great set up with our nations seafaring history all around. The conditions that our Mariners and sub Mariners endured are amazing. A fun and fact filled day out for the whole family. The annual ticket also lets you explore the historic dockyard in Portsmouth and the Explosion museum!

Amazing experience visiting the huge submarine at Gosport. The guides on board were so knowledgeable and passionate about the submarine service, and at least one had obviously served. The museum was great, too, with loads of interactive stuff for the kids. Then a short ferry back to Portsmouth - great day out.

Perhaps if I had been a submariner I would have found it more interesting, grandsons had lots of questions though

Finding the museum was simple enough even though it is tucked away in a marina. The day we went it was wet and cold, but that doesn't really impact on the venue, as everything is 'indoors'. Buying tickets 'on-line' saves you a bit of money but not any time. The museum, adjacent to the submarine, has interactive elements for kids.... More

We visited the alliance last november, much improved since I last went about 20 years ago. The guides are ex submariners and the one we had was very good he told us stories from when he was a submariner which makes the tour even more realistic, the museum part is also very informative. the cost is around 14 pound. But... More
