Owner description: 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

“Fascinating”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

Sensible shoes required and lots of steep stairs. Well laid out and plenty of room to move around. Clear exhibits well labelled. (More languages would help) A fascinating chance to see a warship that was 'old before its time' and never fired a shot in anger.

“a brilliant place to visit”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

this ship is situated not far from the Victory - personally i found it far more interesting than the Victory. there is plenty of room to move about and many interesting exhibits on board. well worth a visit (or two)

“worth a visit”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

It gives a very good insight to how life on board ship in those times was. It is quite an eye opener.

“Fun on the Warrior”
Reviewed 12 February 2012

This vessel is in fantastic condition and gets you close to how life would have been for the 700 sailors. The fact that this amazing ship never encountered the enemy in combat is testiment to it's supremacy upon the oceans. They just gave up!
