I have wanted to go here for ages and now am pleased to say I have been, the submarine is so interesting, it's hard to believe people actually served on these...wow! The guides on board were actual serving crew members and were able to give first hand experience of life on board. Ask lots of questions as they are more... More

It has been quite a few years since we have been to the museum, quite a bit has changed. It's a good museum and you can spend a few hours here. It's a shame the German sub is not on display at the moment as was wanted to see this. The only downside I would say is the price, a... More

There is a museum which contains England's first submarine, Holland I (be warned, it must be kept VERY warm, expect heat in that room). Then you will not want to miss the H.M.S. Alliance. Tour guide was great.

Fascinating look inside HMS ALLIANCE commissioned in 1947. Fifties flavour on board. Also museum houses hands-on stuff and one of the first submarines from the beginning of the 20th century which you can go inside. Best value as part of a combined ticket rather than paid for individually. Free parking and waterbus to main historic dockyard attractions so works well... More

As a couple we like exploring new things, this was one which we'd picked out do do whilst down here and it didn't disappoint! Not only do you get hands on with learning you also get to go in a submarine (and learn a lot along the way) this was a fantastic day out, the site has a cafe which... More

This is an interesting place to visit. The real jewel is the Submarine which you can walk right through, HMS Alliance. Other than that although interesting it's not such good value.

We had an all attractions Portsmouth Historic Dockyard ticket that included the Submarine Museum at Gosport and, as we were staying just down the road in Fareham, we decided to go by car directly rather than via the Dockyard. Great decision as there is Free Parking. The Museum is based around 3 submarines the biggest of which is HMS Alliance.... More

This is a wonderful museum with several restored submarines on site. The centre piece is HMS Alliance, commisioned in 1947. It is extraordinary to walk through this submarine and consider how the crew lived. How they could live in those conditions for weeks on end is extraordinary. There is a well put together exhibition hall with a good blend of... More

Free on site parking is always a bonus. HMS Alliance tour was very interesting, how anyone could live and work on there for 6 weeks at a time is beyond me. Nice little museum area with some fascinating artefacts. Worth checking out if you are in the area.
