Visited the Museum for the second time in eight years. Got a shock at the entrance fee, £18 each. However the Alliance has been recently overhauled and nicely done out. Much better presentation than before but sadly the Guided tour presentation was not available. Offered a free visit on our tickets for October when the guided tour will be running. Won't help me much as it's a long trip from South Africa to Gosport plus I found out that unless I was a UK tax payer and had "Gift Aided" my ticket I was not entitled to the free tour. I didn't know what they were talking about but a kind gentleman visitor did explain it to me. The shop area and audio video items were very good and interesting. Well laid out and all worked. Very interesting and enjoyable apart from the step price .

I had a fantastic day here with my wife, who also thoroughly enjoyed herself. It was informative, fun and the opportunity to immerse yourself in living history was fantastic. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking to kill some time, or just relish is some submariner history.

We've all seen the movies. Submarines, the ping, ping, ping of the sonar, the cramped and confined conditions. Here you get to actually see what a submarine is really like. The exhibits are excellent and well thought out and the tour of the submarine is a real highlight. Well worth a visit!

All the exhibitions are fantastic and they include the X-craft, HMS Reliant and the Holland 1 etc.
The tour of the Reliance was very good indeed and gives a glimpse of how those heroes struggled to survive.

I have seen all the attractions in the Portsmouth Dockyard, some several times, but I have never made the side trip to Gosport. From Portsmouth Harbour Station it is a pleasant and cheap trip on the Gosport ferry and a ten minute walk along the front at Gosport, past a pleasant marina to the museum. There is a free ferry from the dockyard, but only once an hour at present. The museum majors on the recently refitted HMS Alliance, a 1,500 ton submarine in service from 1947 to 1973. Having been in an Oberon class sub in Australian {about 2,000 tons} I was ready for the cramped conditions. It has been beautifully restored, and as the only WW2 large submarine surviving it is worth the slightly claustrophobic viewing. It also serves as a shrine to the 5,300 British submariners lost since 1904. The very early Holland 1-WW1 and the midget sub from WW2 HMS X24 are worth seeing too- both even more cramped. The staff and guides are cheerful, helpful and knowledgeable. The toilets were spotless and there was a good well priced café selling jacket potatoes, quiche salads {good} submarine rolls, drinks and ice cream, Allow about two hours for a full visit. Note on a hot day it is even warmer in the sub.
