Although we booked online and got a good discount we still had to queue which was a bit tricky as one of our party had already got a ticket and had to hang around waiting for us. However, when we got inside it was brilliant. The facilities were good, we had lovely sandwiches in Hangar 7. We visited the Victory... More

We visited for a day and intend returning for another day in the summer. We bought the Dockyard tickets from a Travel Zoo special offer for just £19 each - well worth the money! The Dockyard is really clean and there is so much to see. So glad we visited and looking forward to returning again soon. Please click below... More

February half term - wet and cold! We spent just over four hours there with the grandchildren and so prioritised the three ships as our target to see. Victory, Mary Rose and Warrior. There's loads of history for the kids to see and take in and all from different periods of time. We all thought the day went very well... More

We purchased a voucher allowing unlimited returns to the historic dockyard for a whole year so went on a free morning whilst engaged on another mission, we chose to just visit the Mary Rose museum as we had limited time and wow what an experience, we enjoyed all aspects of the exhibition from the wreck itself with its projected images...

We planned t spend the day before and the day after our holiday to the Isle of Wight here so bought all attraction tickets on line and they were well worth it, also we can go back as much as we want for a year. On our first day it was very cold and windy, we visited hms victory which... More

The historic dockyards deserve a few days to fully reveal her wonders. The Warrior, the Victory and the Mary Rose offer a vivid glimpse of seafaring history. One can gain a deep grasp of the tough life aboard a warship. Fantastic for any age group.

We went in February half term using Tesco vouchers and really enjoyed our day. Hadn't been for many many years and we were all very impressed. The new Mary Rose museum in particular is stunning. A complete change from the old exhibit. They have managed to make what is essentially a pile of old wood so engaging and interesting that... More

This dockyard is really 'just' a naval museum but it contains several significant historic boats of national importance, including Mary Rose, Warrior and Victory. In addition there are many other attractions on-site including museums. A day will not be enough time. Fortunately tickets last a year. We've been twice and still not seen everything. You dont need to be a... More

This was a great day out with grandchildren. We had pre bought tickets on the internet, took the park and ride to the front gate, which was excellent but were then faced with a long queue which was frustrating. The children were keen to go inside, but we were in a long slow queue which must have taken more than... More

We visited a few years ago before Mary Rose Exhibition was open and did the harbour tour and museums. This time we spent a day and a half visiting the Mary Rose, HMS Victory, M33, and Action Stations - plenty to do without duplicating anything we had done on the previous visit. Unfortunately our half term didn't match that of... More
