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

Fine example of a Victorian warship

A visit to the warrior gives a great insight into what life was like on a baby shop in this period and life at sea in general.

The Gates to the Warrior were shut so we could not get close, I read up on this ship before going, it was built in 1860 after many years it was retired and became a floating Harbour up North for many years, fortunately it was rescued by the Royal Navy and completely rebuilt to it's original splender.

This is a great insight into a bygone age. The volunteer staff were so helpful and informative about this wonderful old ship. You are able to either join a guide or wander at your own lesuire, a really great historical visit.

You can not be other than in awe of this great old warship, she sits proudly, and is the first thing you see, coming out of the Railway Station. Well worth a visit.
