Overview

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

Interesting insight into life aboard ship. Extensive works going on at the time of writing (May 2018). This didn’t detract particularly, but if you’re a budding David Bailey it would spoil the upper deck photos to some extent. Still worth a visit.

This was one of the best ship to visit in Portsmouth, much better than The Victory even. Well laid out, lots to see, and all very photogenic.

From the outside, HMS Warrior looks a touch 'ordinary'. Not a bit of it, it was fascinating. We loved it, the guides were brilliant and we learned a huge amount. It's really worth a visit so make sure you get there if you go to...More

We enjoyed this visit. The contrast between this ship and the earlier Victory was very interesting. Lots to see. Well worth a visit.

We went later in the afternoon and it was quiet so we could linger. Very well preserved. The cannons were amazing, there were shotguns and swords. Cabins were on view and the rolled up hammocks over the canons for the ratings. The jail looked very...More

Although we've visited the dockyard before, this was the first time we'd explored HMS Warrior. We wish we had done so sooner. This is a beautiful ship. It is undergoing quite significant restoration work at the moment but don't let that put you off -...More

Going to see the Warrior was brilliant. The staff were very informative and polite. We learned a lot, everywhere was spotless, this was more informative than the victory.

This was the first iron clad ship, originally steam powered, so in that time when ship design and technology was moving ahead apace. This meant that it soon became outdated and she was decommissioned just 23 years after being built and later restored and now...More

The dockyard ticket does not include the Mary Rose- be warned!!!! The Warrior is a fascinating visit and tends to be less busy as everyone goes for the HMS Victory.

I know the gates of the dockyard close about 5 pm ish and I'm sure like most it will open at 10am. As a rule I always go with open from 10:30 and last tours are at 4pm in summer months. It has always worked for me
