Overview

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

I had been to the dockyard before but not had time to visit HMS Warrior. I was worried to see several canvas structures covering the deck and thought it might be closed. It's open ! And the really great things are inside below decks. It...More

Warrior is a great ship but even more impressive, when you enter inside. One of the few remaining ships built by the Thames Iron works company at Lower Lea. Must see.

The first metal dreadnought built in 1860 but outdated by 1885 !! Very well presented internally and externally. You really do see the whole ship in its full splendour.. Lots of steps for obvious reasons but fascinating. A must see.

By far the best ship in the dockyard. The rows of cannons a sight to behold. Great history. Not spoilt by the work going on under cover.

How wonderful to go aboard this wonderful ship. So full of history and stories. Go below decks and see how the crew lived. Would definately go again.

Visited this attraction using an 11 attraction ticket, so it was part of the inclusive cost. We walked around the ship without any specific guide, but found it interesting to compare the relatively spacious and improvement in conditions for the crew against the conditions on...More

We loved this ship. History and engineering coming together, yet never a shot fired in anger. It's really well laid out and there are plenty of very knowledgeable guides available to answer questions and point you in the right direction. The restoration continues, and the...More

I know the gates of the dockyard close about 5 pm ish and I'm sure like most it will open at 10am. As a rule I always go with open from 10:30 and last tours are at 4pm in summer months. It has always worked for me
