Even with masts removed (weight problem out of water), still a terrific experience.Certainly not to be missed.

The most famous ship in navel history, fully restored and more restoration works being done. If you are a history buff or a fan of Lord Nelson well worth the visit. The ship tour which is at your leisure as you follow the roped off areas is interesting but a little short. Many aspects of the ship you don’t see which is a let down.

Possibly the most famous Royal Navy ship. The Victory has been wonderfully restored and has to be the must-see attraction at the Historic Dockyards. If you want a bit of a guide then you can get a handheld auto guide, though we took our own route. Just a warning, the ceiling in some places are low so beware if you're a tall person!

The scale of this old warship is amazing (although the ceilings are a bit low!) And it's lucky they have a well laid out route, as I think it would be easy to get lost!
It has been taken care of and finished to such high quality. There were a few guide's, but I was generally left to my own - which I prefer.
The ticket price does seem quite expensive on its own, but if you get a bundle with the other attractions it is much better value.

An excellent attraction lovingly restored to its rightful place in British maritime history. Take your time and mind your head in places. One tip to avoid the high entry price to the Royal Naval Historic Dockyards is to buy your tickets through groupon - we saved 50% of the entry price. A great place to take the kids.

We visited HMS Victory the day after visiting Mary Rose. HMS Victory was a disappointment - great ship ; great experience walking around all desks with good displays throughout - but i can't recall i sign telling us anything about what we were looking at. For example - when we were looking into cabins ; dining areas etc, was this Nelsons quarters or other crew members? we had no idea. Took us about 30mins to walk through all decks, yet with a couple of information signs about the ship and what we were looking at, we could have been there 1hour+.

The Victory has been renovated recently. I can’t think there’s been an improvement. There are no information cards to explain the items on display. Don’t even know which was Nelson’s cabin. Perhaps signs will be added shortly?

Glad the price was included in the 11 attractions ticket as it sadly wasn't worth a big expenditure in my opinion.

Yes, lots of history and a 'must see' but, as others have said, scuttling through the many decks is physically painful if you are much over 5ft (can't blame them for this) and can feel quite claustrophobic. There is also a real dearth of information around the ship. There was a bit more in the museum, but these more interesting, interactive and multimedia items would benefit from being on the ship itself.

SS Great Britain in Bristol does this so much better!

Hiya,

Thanks for leaving us a review, we're sorry to see you found HMS Victory claustrophobic. As part of her new interpretation we are trying to portray the ship as she would have been at the battle of Trafalgar, so to ensure an authentic impression of life on board HMS Victory in 1805 all modern, intrusive and anachronistic elements have been removed.
We are lucky to have some very knowledgeable members of staff on board who will be happy to answer any questions you have and talk to you about the ship herself, along with the information you saw in the Museum and the Victory Gallery. We do hope that these elements help to bring the ship to life for you if you do decide to visit us again.

Kind regards,
Visitor Experience Team
