Visit HMS Warrior 1860 and step back in time... to 1861
As you step on board HMS Warrior you are entering the world of a Victorian sailor. The aim of the Warrior Preservation Trust has been to restore the ship, as near as possible, to her 1860s condition, and we want you to imagine that the ship's company has just gone ashore.
There is something of interest for everyone and visitors are encouraged to touch and try things out, sit at a mess deck table, join in a gun drill - become part of history onboard.
You are invited to explore Warrior's four vast decks at your leisure. Please take your time and feel free to wander. We do, however, recommend you allow approximately 1 - 1 ½ hours for your visit. There are crew and volunteers on board who will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
We want you to enjoy this very special ship.

"One of the best attractions in Portsmouth"
I love the Warrior, it is my favourite attraction here in Portsmouth. I have been on it countless times and always enjoy my time on here. Great knowledgeable staff, always friendly. I even attended a wine tasting evening here and had a fantastic evening in the sun in a beautiful location. Would reccomend that if your going to the dockyard for one attraction, chose this one!

This was part of a present for someone so we got to the Dockyard not really knowing what to expect and we were very surprised. We started on this ship, a really great visit and you could almost imaging how the people must have lived and worked on board, so cramped and difficult conditions, it gave a great insight to how it was.There were guides on boards who were very happy to stop and chat to you. A great place to visit, would recommend.

"What a wonderful historic ship"
My husband and our friends visited the HMS Warrior on a very wet and windy day, we weren't too sure what to expect and once on board we were really pleased that we had chosen the HMS Warrior - what a wonderful historic ship. I must also thank the wonderful guides that showed us around and made us feel that we were important. They made our imaginations soar and made our day out such a memorable one. I just wanted to say a big Thankyou.
