We had long looked forward to seeing this magnificent historic vessel and it was well worth the bus trip to Portsmouth from London. To our surprise, visitors are basically given the run of the ship. Unlike some other travelers, we welcomed the absence of extensive...More

Took the kids when they were little, 30+ years ago. Decided to go back. HMS Victory is still a spellbinding ship but sadly there were no ratings to take one around. The volunteer staff were very knowledgeable but did not accompany you. The signage was...More

You can view Nelson's flagship free of charge, located in the historical dockyward, adjacent to the Mary Rose museum. Other ships on view too. Worth a visit.

My husband is a bit of a buff when it comes to war ships. He had been reading about the HMS Victory all the time so, when we visited England, we knew this tour had to be a part of our trip. It was a...More

Fantastically restored ship and a very interesting walk around it. Not too much headroom on the lower decks as expected, but nothing to complain about. The issue for me was that unlike the Mary Rose, which is packed with both information and helpful guides, the...More

It’s a wonderful historic museum / ship let down by the absence of any information when on board . No placards, signs or apology . Volunteer guides few and far between . Had been before and wanted to tell my grandchildren what the various rooms...More

If you ever get the chance to eat on this Flagship of the Royal Navy.....you must do! You get the ship to yourselves, a guided tour before dinner and drinks to follow, its just a fantastic experience.

We visited HMS Victory as part of our visit to the Historic Dockyard. I would suggest missing out on HMS Victory as it is just a walk around a wooden vessel with nothing to inspire, educate or give you a feel for what was like...More

Hi vicki380, Thank you for leaving a review. We are sorry to read that HMS Victory did not meet your expectations. On board we have seven guides any one time, plus our volunteers. Over the past three years HMS Victory has undergone a full reinterpretation...More

Incredible to be able to walk through Nelson's flagship and see not only the spot where he died but also the conditions for the ship's crew.

Good afternoon,, Unfortunately the masts of HMS Victory are not due to be put back on the ship until the end of the restoration process which is not likely to be until 2025. Best wishes, VE team.
