This is a fantastic day out. We took the whole family (2 +2) including two grandparents (£77). Large rough car park (don't park in the middle if it's raining). Large site with three large ships including submarine. Book the Rope House visit on arrival (no extra cost) and then immediately book your tours of the submarine and warship. Allow an hour for each. Submarine tour can be managed by most depending upon your level of fitness! Steep stairs (go down backwards - ladies wear trousers) and large round hatchways to 'swing' through when moving down the vessel may deter very young, parents with babies and less mobile (not to mention claustrophobic!) Anyhow very worthwhile - fantastic experience. Rope House is an absolute must with theatrical guide. Chance to buy samples of rope made before your eyes in the traditional manner - have 50p ready. Staff are all very helpful. Antarctic Exhibition photos and artefacts are outstanding. Ships models in the Smithy are excellent. Restaurant reasonable prices - soup recommended! Other 'sheds' have excellent static displays - enjoyed the range of lifeboats. Enough for two days for the historically minded. Limited range in the gift-shop.
