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

The ship looks stunning as you walk along the harbour and can't be missed. I'd never been inside before so was amazed by the size. The steps were a little challenging, but to be fair accessibility was probably less of a priority when the ship was designed! There's a decent guide, though I somehow managed to get a bit lost...

This is well worth a visit. The stairs can be a bit steep with just rope to hold onto but my grandshildren and I coped without any issues. The staff are on hand to explain about day to day life on the ship. This is well worth a visit.

Fascinating insight into the lives of the sailors many years ago. Many helpful, passionate volunteers to guide you around the ship and re-tell their information. Very enjoyable day.

We visited close to closing time so we were rushing around (our own fault). They were also setting up for an evening event so it did feel as though we were walking into parts we shouldn't have been! However everyone was friendly and helped direct us when we couldn't find a way out! Please note there are lots of steep... More

This ship can be explored at your own leisure, unlike the HMS Victory where you have to go on an escorted tour but there are ex sailors on board who are very willing to answer questions and provided fascinating facts about the ship.

We weren't expecting this to be so brilliant. Sail and steam all in one! And you can book a wedding here - how cool is that?

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.

You must visit even if you are not that into history the Warrior will draw you in. Well preserved and great staff. Could spend all day aboard.

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.
