WARRIOR CAM : LIVE VIEWS OVER PORTSMOUTH HARBOUR

From the half-moon high in the mizzen mast of this famous Victorian Warship, The Warrior Cam commands stunning views over Portsmouth, Gosport and the Isle of Wight as well as the Historic Dockyard. The camera pans between vistas approximately every 10 seconds, broadcasting live video around the clock. This webcam has been installed to help raise awareness of this stunning historic ship. Please help us by telling others about it.

WEBCAM VIEWS

Camera views are changes periodically to take in the sights and events of Portsmouth Harbour. Below is more information about some of the regular stops.

Stern

The decorative pattern seen looking down at the ship's stern are the brass rails that allowed for the easy re-positioning of Warrior's devastating 110lb Armstrong gun - visible in the centre of the picture. Keep your eyes open for happy couples celebrating weddings on board HMS Warrior and posing in for photos in this popular spot.

Portsmouth Ferries

Time it right and you might catch a number of ferries. The small green ferries shuttle passengers to and from Gosport whilst the Wight Link ships take cars and passengers to the Isle of Wight. The larger Brittany and Condor Ferries service the Jersey, Guernsey, France and Spain.

Deck from the mizzen

This dizzying view shows off our web cams mast top location and also provides a great opportunity for visitors to HMS Warrior to give a wave to friends and relatives watching online. The camera returns to this spot approximately every two minutes.

South Railway Jetty

This jetty was originally constructed in the 1860s to enable Queen Victoria and family to easily move from train to ship. Today it is more frequently used as a stop for Royal Naval warships and visiting ships from foreign navies.

Gosport Ferry

The route this busy ferry takes might only cover a third of a mile of water, but it saves a journey of over 14 miles by car. This view also takes in Gosport Marina and gives a great view of the busy route in and out of the harbour.

Harbour Entrance

Its narrow entrance is one of the features that has made Portsmouth Harbour such an important naval stronghold throughout history. On the left of the picture is Old Portsmouth with its cobbled streets and historic pubs.

Semaphore Tower

Semaphore tower is one of the more instantly recognisable buildings in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and is today home for the Queens Harbour Master who control the movement of all large vessels around the harbour.

The time is now...

Just to prove that the camera is live, this shot takes in the clock tower of the Vulcan Building and Gun Wharf. Behind the clock tower Southsea Cenotaph can be seen with Spitbank Fort visible to the right of the picture.

Tide State

This view shows the current state of the tide as we look down at “The Hard”. To the right of the image Portsmouth Harbour train station can be seen between the ship’s rigging.

Masts of HMS Victory

Peeking through Warriors rigging we get a glimpse of Lord Nelson's flagship, HMS Victory currently undergoing restoration work to her masts and rigging. HMS Victory sits in dry dock alongside the Mary Rose Museum, just out of shot to the right.

Ensign

During daylight the Ship's Red Ensign can be seen waving in the Portsmouth Sea breeze giving a good indication of the wind state in the harbour.

Spinnaker Tower

Standing watch over Portsmouth Harbour the Spinnaker tower offers unrivalled views over Portsmouth, the Solent and a surprising amount of the surrounding area. Those taking the lift to the viewing platforms also get treated to bird-eye view back down to HMS Warrior and Portmouth Historic Dockyard.
