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

We visited here as we had a ticket to visit all the attractions for the historic ship yard in Portsmouth. She is a working process funded by grants and lots of donations and what they have achieved so far is outstanding. You won't be disappointed when you are on board with the restoration work, rigging and of course the treats... More

I've been on HMS Warrior many times and it's my personal favourite, so much to see and do learn about sea life all those years ago and what a typical day would involve, and such poor conditions, for its age the technology it had and the way in which it's still standing today in all it glory, worth a trip.

Went with a crowd of "girls" on a tour through the Royal Marines Museum Friends. We were shown all the interesting parts that not everyone gets to see - right down below. It really is a lovely ship and was used when my partner of Portsmouth Shantymen was in Gareth Malone's TV programme! Lots of volunteers on board to give... More

We visited Portsmouth in May 2016. As a lover of history in particular anything with a RN connection those four days were without a doubt the Bees knees. We first went aboard Worrior then Victory and Lastly The Mary Rose, I was in heaven. We had to take a break and left the dockyard and within a few yards there... More

Visiting HMS Warrior is like stepping back in time. This vessel is well laid out for visitors and all guides are really knowledgeable and eager to tell you about this great vessel. Loved the visit as did the family. This is the 4th time we have walked around and I have also attended some of the evening functions which are... More

I never tire of visiting HMS Warrior. You are free to roam around this ship on your own but there are experts on hand to answer your questions. Children will love it. Try to avoid Saturday, as it's very popular for weddings, and special event days because it will be crowded. Also, as it is docked on the sea, it... More

We had absolutely no idea what to expect when we went on board this ship. We were amazed at how wonderful it looked inside. After being completely gutted when becoming obsolete, she was used in many different ways for a number of years. In 1978 she was acquired by a trust as the only surviving ship of the Black Battle...
