“Brilliant history lesson, makes you proud to be British!”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

Brilliant!! suggest you visit the Victory before Warrior so that you appreciate how ships evolved. You experience the cramped conditions of the sailors, it is very difficult to imagine this ship at war and in battle conditions when you see just how cramped life was on this ship. But this ship is part of our history good & bad, difficult to imagine sailors being happy onboard but then many books say that they enjoyed the life, well fed and paid good money for the times. it made me stop and think but very proud of the history even though many lives were lost creating it!. We were able to watch men repair the ship decks using 300 year old methods, take your time and enjoy this tour. This is not a tour for those with walking problems, many steps and cramped conditions.

“The Victory experience”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

very informal, able to browse at our leisure, staff were excellent. A group of children visiting at the same time were really getting involved, hands-on with drums, bugles and colouring pictures. worth a visit for all ages..

“Touch the history”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

They call it "the most famouse battleship in the world", as it was Nelson's flagship on Trafalger and where he died. Maybe they tale it too far, but for sure you touch history in here.

“One of Britain's must see attractions”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

One of Britain's must see attractions - though most if it has been replaced over the 200 years.
Some very low ceilings so be careful if you are tall!
