Owner description: As you arrive at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, the stunning sleek, black lines of Britain's first iron-hulled, armoured warship, take your breath away. Warrior, launched in 1860, was the pride of Queen Victoria's fleet. Powered by steam and sail, she was the largest, fastest and most powerful ship of her day and had a profound effect on naval architecture. Warrior was, in her time, the ultimate deterrent. Yet within a few years she was obsolete. Restored and back at home in Portsmouth, Warrior now serves as a ship museum, monument, visitor attraction, private venue and more. Open all year round, we invite you to experience her for yourself. Open daily from 10.00am except 24th, 25th & 26th December

A fantasic insight of how it was on board a ship in that time. You can go right down to the engine room, see how the officers lived and see how bad it was for the sailors.

Worth allowing plenty of time to look round this interesting large Victorian Sailing/Steam fighting ship. Lots to see with plenty of friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff ready to answer questions and explain in detail.

There is a lot to see on this ship. Best to visit on a nice day as there is a lot of decking to stroll over up top.

You could imagine this ship is ready to go into battle. Muskets in place, swords sharp and polished, canons ready to fire etc.

Has a lot in common with modern ships including the laundry, engine room, crew quarters etc.

Lots of steep stairs but its a great place to explore.

The ticket cost included Victory and a Harbour cruise (worth £7 alon) The ship is beautifully restored and makes you feel you have taken a trip back in time. Lots of information on the ship and how it fell into disuse and couldnt be sold and eventually was restored. The immaculate engine room seem incongruous in a sailing ship.
