Access for All
Visiting - Access For All
Warrior is a 'hands-on' attraction where visitors are encouraged to touch and try things out - there are many sounds, smells and textures to be experienced. Working Dogs are welcome onboard
Visitors with disabilities or specials needs are most welcome onboard Warrior but this historic ship may present challenges for some visitors. Access is best achieved with the aid of another individual.
Warrior has four decks, connected by steep steps. The upper deck is accessible to all visitors but some areas may be more difficult to access. These areas can now be experienced with our 'virtual' tour of the ship available to view at the Warrior reception area within the Visitor Centre.
For wheelchair users
Due to the historic nature of the ship, access can be difficult. We recommend visitors contact us prior to their visit so that we can suggest the best time to gain access with ease. At certain times the tides may make the gradient of our gangways steep. Once on board ramps provide access on to the upper deck and, for those able to transfer, there is a stairlift giving access to the main gun deck where a manual wheelchair is available for use.
Toilets with access for wheelchair users can be found in Boathouse No. 7, Action Stations, The Royal Naval Museum and Victory arena.
Wheelchairs are available to use, free of charge, from the Visitor Centre, Mary Rose and Royal Naval Museum (a form of identity will be required).
There is an audio guide available that has a hearing loop option
Warrior is a very accessible 'hands-on' ship and many tactile exhibits are available. Braille and large print deckplans are available at our reception desk.
Guided Tours can be arranged for special needs audiences but these must be pre-booked and are subject to the availability of volunteer guides. Groups are, therefore, advised to contact us in advance of their visit to check availability and make the necessary arrangements. For more information please call 023 9277 8609
Please note: Occasionally access to certain areas of the ship may be restricted due to functions or events. If you are making a special journey please contact us for the latest information.
