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 was delighted to visit the Mary Rose and Victory they are a must but at the time a little less enthusiastic about going to HMS Warrior. Having served in the RN since I was 15 years old I have never had the desire to serve on "big ships" Cruisers and Destroyers yes and even Boats but anything bigger no... More

Revisited the Dockyards mainly to see the Mary Rose museum which was not opened on our last visit. Simply had to pop back to the warrior as in my opinion she is the absolute star of the show and well worth an hour of anyone's time. The crew/volunteers are more than happy to talk, explain or enthuse about this beautiful... More

Part of Queen Victoria's Black Ships navy - Warrior is huge - bigger than Victory and more powerful by far - but the sailors of Nelson's navy would have been right at home. Proof that fast changing technology is not just a 21st century thing - she was obsolete in a very short time and only survived to today by... More

My friend and I visited Warrior during a trip to the Museum of the Royal Navy. The vessel was very popular, and there was lots to see on this ship of a bygone era. The talk about the ships gunnery was fascinating, it's amazing just how far the canon balls and `grape' travelled! There is no doubt that life at... More

Make sure you go to HMS Victory and HMS Warrior. The comparison between them is so interesting because they're so similar in many ways and yet so far apart technologically. It was so beautiful and comfortable that I wanted to move in.

having seen this ship as a hulk in Milford Haven in 1973 it was great to see her fully restored. Volunteer guides fantastic! Spent an hour or two without getting bored, lovely experience, but steep stairs everywhere!
