Visited in December 2016, Got there early on a Sunday so it was nice and quiet, Very much enjoyed our visit and the staff were all welcoming and helpful and happy to answer questions, it was a cold day so the hot chocolate from the Costa was welcome too, plenty to see and do, well worth a visit.

A visit to the historic dockyard is an absolute must-do for anybody in this part of the world. The guided tour around "Victory" given by a most knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide (Anthony) lasted more than one hour and was simply incredible. The "Mary Rose" Museum is a state-of-the-art presentation of the vessel and artefacts recovered from it that is quite... More

Family of three we visited during the Victorian market event, which initially we were concerned about as we only really wanted to see the ships. However, the prices are reduced during this event, albeit for a single day ticket, and the Victorian xmas event was actually very well done and enjoyable too. Visiting the ships was a real treat, and... More

We were in the area with a free day. So glad my hubby mentioned this place. Fab day out really worth the entry price. Book an all attraction ticket for that little bit extra. There is so much to see and do - lots of history. If you look around the boats there are some steep stairs which can be... More

Much to see and visit in the historic dockyard with appealing features everywhere. The Mary Rose Museum and HMS Victory are one of a kind for the nautically inclined.

Booked our tickets online before 30th October and got them at a discount to the on the day price. The entry price included most of the dockyard exhibits as well as the market. Had an enjoyable 30 minutes watching a 'travelling performer' who was very good. Wandered around the stalls, purchased some cheeses and chilli condiments. Had a drink sitting... More

We keep buying the annual all-attractions ticket every year from Travelzoo. It's brilliant value, and we never get tired of visiting. The harbour tour was particularly good with a great raconteur as our guide! Can't wait until the grandchildren are old enough to enjoy it. Oh, and the unveiled Mary Rose is breathtaking!

This is our second visit during the winter Dickensian Christmas Market. Thourghly enjoyed the day, I'm not a fan of Christmas Markets but this one has dickens characters enacting many of the scene from various of his books,all in costume,also can visit the Victory and the Warrior,and the Mary Rose included in the ticket price, normally each exhibit is £18.
