We visited Dicken's World before we came here which was a mistake because it took time away from a much better attraction which takes more than a day to explore fully. On the other hand the comparison between the two was enlightening; the Dockyards are a real piece of history, beautifully preserved and looked after and of course it could be nowhere else. Dickens World would be better anywhere than where it is and is a cheap and shoddy memorial to a great man.
Things we liked - the chance to go into a battleship, a training ship and a sub; the professional way that the tours are timed ad managed; the friendly and knowledgeable staff; the Ropery Tour with the wonderful Mr Steve.
Things that we liked less - poor service in the restaurant; poor selection of goods in the shop; the lack of anything from the Titanic in the Titanic exhibition.
Room for improvement - more interactivity, especially for kids.
We really appreciated the tickets that allow entry for a year. There is so much to do that we had to miss quite a bit. We will certainly be back.
