My wife and I bought the "all attractions" pass and managed to fill two days of sightseeing and exploration. I thoroughly recommend visiting the HMS Victory and the WW2 submarine. The harbor tour.was also very interesting, especially as the sun was shining. We only saw half of it and are planning to return to see the rest later this year.... More

Spent an entire day here and need to return to see the rest of it. We were bowled over by the number of venues and exhibits. The all attraction ticket, valid for a year, has to be the best value for money in the south of England and we only seen 50 per cent of what is on offer. Now... More

We happened upon HMS Warrior whilst on a harbour tour and got off there. Each of the many attractions is around £18 per adult or a year pass for about twice that amount. We paid only for HMS Warrior. Its really quite expensive. HMS Warrior is amazing. So well restored. So interesting. The "helpers" are very approachable and knowledgable -... More

My husband and I visited here over Easter. We spent two days here and still did not manage to see everything. The Mary Rose is an absolute must as well as the harbour tour. I would recommend this for couples and families alike.

There is so much to see that we should have allowed an entire day, we were not able to get around all the vessels and exhibitions on site in the half day we'd allowed. Victory is a must if you are short on time, but take the day and see it all. Everything from vessel restoration, to historic displays and... More

Went on good Friday, bought the tickets on line thinking it would not only be cheaper but quicker on arrival wrong. Long queue to collect pre bought tickets with no difference between prebooked and bought on the day, which made me feel special. Once in there were no queues for anything, excellent. We had out nine and eleven year old... More

Good Friday was an extremely busy day and unfortunately tickets purchased online are not fast track tickets. However I am glad the rest of your visit was enjoyable and your family had fun.
