We had planned to visit the Submarine museum for some time and finally made the trip. Specifically, we wanted to visit HMS Alliance as it reflects the “A” Class submarines that my father-in law served on in the 50s. (Amphion and Artemis). Although the additional fairing to the tower and fold down beds had been upgraded, you could easily see... More

Had a reasonable day. Went round HMS Alliance, tour started off ok with a good tour guide, we were then left to go through the sub on our own so really didn't find out much. Expensive for what it was as essentially we looked at a load of stuff we didn't know! Check there is a guide before you pay!

A really good museum to visit if your love submarines or never thought about them, the staff are friendly, and the speakers on the boat are all ex submariners, with lots of fond memories and not so fond to pass on to the tours. Visit is made all the better with the attraction ticket that lets you get the boat... More

Went on the waterbus (free) from the Historic dockyard as we had bought an all inclusive ticket. We sent a couple of hours looking at a very interesting museum and being shown around the HMS Alliance. Only about 15 on the tour at one time as the space inside the vessel is very tight. The guide was an ex-mariner and... More

We spent a wonderful couple of hours at the Submarine museum. There is a guided tour through HMS Alliance, you see how the crew lived and worked as well as the sounds of the engines running, depth charges being dropped and looking through the periscope. We were lucky enough to have a guide that actually served onboard the submarine in... More

Well presented museum with tour of HMS Alliance by ex-submariner. It is also worth noting that if you are staying Gosport side of the water, you can leave your car at the museum while you get the water taxi to Portsmouth Dockyard....saves a fortune in parking fees. Just watch the times of the ferries so you don't get locked in... More

It was very interesting & the guy who did the submarine tour, was a veteran who originally served on it. There is also a great tea shop.

Visited October 2016 and found this a fascinating trip. We did the tour on HMS Alliance first, taken through the sub by a retired sub-mariner we could have listened to all day. It was well worth spending time in the visitors centre for the extra displays and film of the sub we had just been on. You come away with... More

On the Gosport peninsular just across the bridge joining Portsmouth and walkable. An excellent museum with real submarines to visit, especially HMS ALLIANCE as she was in commission and the very first submarine. Demonstrations and practical models which give hands on experience of how submarines work and how they use their weapons. Includes nuclear and conventional and very informative. Children... More

What a wonderful museum. The gentleman that tell you about the submarine are all rx mariners'. They are so knowledgeable and friendly. The museum is very informative and the interactive section is great for both adults and children.

Thank Luckylea
