“Excellent - Historic Dock Yard.”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

The Royal Navy Historic Dock Yard to give it its correct name - Go and spend a day (it wont be long enough though) and enjoy some naval history. Great attraction. I live not far away and every time a friend/family come down from "up north" they want to go. Strange review from the guy who says its wasted on him why go in the first place, and having been mark it down ? (ah well people being people) HMS Victory takes pride of place be aware though at the time of writing she is undergoing renovation work, and you could be dissapointed. (check before you go it your coming a long way) Incidentally the picture next to the site name of the marine with the flag is NOT a the Historic Dock yard but the Royal Marines Museum no where near the Historic Dock Yard

“The best statue i've ever seen”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

the most poignant statue showing a Royal Marine with his kit bag and gun in bronze resembling a fearless soldier protecting the entrance. inside a history of the royal navy, very informative, but not interactive enough and no fun. nice cafe.

Great for all ages and it covers the wealth of maritime history we have in the UK and Portsmouth in particular. Well worth the visit.

It was a very interesting museum that told us about the Royal Navy from its earliest days to the present time.
