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

he first thing that hits you when you arrive at the Quays is the magnificent HMS Warrior. Beautifully restored, the visit is not to be missed. The whole experience is enhanced by the knowledge and willingness of the more than well-qualified and experienced volunteers.

Really puts into perspective what it would have been like to be at sea. The latest of the Royal Naval ship currently being built (Queen Elizabeth) is clearly visible in the background showing the amazing technological advances of the last century

The historic display, the explanatory signage, the helpful volunteers, all combined for a wonderfully informative tour. Well worth seeing.

A Lot of work gone into restoring this great. Ship , and great to see , maybe overshadows the victory in places , steam engines on view , and the bilges. So top to bottom. For a ship spotter it’s great

We loved it as much as the Victory. History was brought to life, very helpful staff and volunteers to answer questions, well worth the trip.

Thanks to the vision of a few people (to start with) we are able to see historic and important ships like this. hard to believe this is described as a battleship. But it was in its day! Every deck has been restored and is open...More

Took my friend's kids to see this. They loved it, even though it was the second ship we visited on the trip.

After visiting HMS Victory, we boarded this ship that dated from 1860. Thing that struck here is that there were many similarities with Victory except that it was much, much bigger. Never fired a shot in anger and within 11 years the ship was obsolete...More

Was very cool ! Def worth seeing. You can get a ticket which allows you to see everything at the dockyard, the line gets big so go early or later.

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
