HMS Warrior stands to the left as you enter the historic dockyard in Portsmouth and it's amazing that it has survived. When built in 1860 as the first metal-hulled battleship she was invincible. Take a tour inside and you will see the huge steam-driven engines...More

A wonderful experience. Very large and impressive. Interesting that it was never seen in action - a real deterrent ! Well positioned, even for photos from the outside. Do not miss !

Went on to HMS Warrior while visiting the Historic Dockyards. It is a ship with an interesting history and has been very well restored and preserved. There's also a little shop on board. Well worth looking around when in Portsmouth.

We were told by friends to be sure to visit here (not only the Victory). So glad we did. It was interesting, and the personnel was helpful when we had a question. We learned so much, and my husband was thrilled to see this vessel.
