“A good place to spend the day.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Attractions here appeal to all ages. There is a small Pool where you can sail on little boats, the children loved it. There is an antiques shop opposite the café, it's full of stuff, it was a real trip into the past. You can also take a trip around the port on a boat tour. The HMS Victory and Warrior are very impressive. The tickets are valid for a year so I will return again.

“Fab day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

Loads to do for the whole family. Kids loved action stations & the harbour tour. The new Mary Rose museum is fantastic, I could have spent loads more time in there. HMS Warrior & Victory were very interesting. Didn't get to see anything else but as tickets are valid for 12 months we will return.

“£26 well spent and more to come”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

We paid the £26 for the year ticket and all attractions and had a brilliant day Mary Rose, Victory and a 45min cruise around Portsmouth Harbour, this all took about 5 hours. Still so much more to see and won't cost to us to return over the next year. An exceptional site and well worth the money.

“Great attraction & good value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

Family ticket is good value at £72.00 and includes return for a year at no extra charge.
We managed to visit The Mary Rose exhibition (really interesting but note you need to book a timeslot to visit which you book when you buy your entry ticket), Victory (currently undergoing refurbishment so some areas closed off but still great), Warrior, and took the harbour tour (where you can see modern warships in dock). Definitely need to return to see everything!
Note food is expensive and quite limited but you can easily pop outside of the dockyard to one of the child friendly pubs in the immediate area for better choice. There is also a Subway and Supermarket outside the official car park which is five minutes from the dockyard entrance.
Definitely recommended, just get there at 10:00 opening time as there is so much to see!
