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

We loved exploring this historic ship. It's amazing to walk each of the levels and see firsthand what life had been like for the men on board when the ship was in use. Everything has been kept exactly as it would have been to give you a true insight into the conditions and life on board the vessel. It's absolutely... More

Opens your eyes to maritime history, and is enjoyable to look around, but lacking in an audio guide or visitor information as you do not really have inclination to read the free leaflet give at reception - a great contrast to the excellent audio guide on the Victory tour. Clearly a wonderful restoration project and a tribute to the changeover... More

Warrior is a massive ship with lots to see and a collection of guides very eager to share with everyone what it was like on board and the history of the ship. Always worth visiting.

The ship was never involved in a battle and is very well preserved. There are volunteers/guides around the ship that can provide details and facts on the various areas. Take the time to go down to the lower decks and visit the vast engine room.

Visited with adult friends. Bought the annual ticket (and will return). We were not offered audio guides, but each guide on board proactively spoke to us and added detail. One even encouraged us to try a hammock; probably better suited to children but great fun trying!

A real highlight of the historic dockyard. The ship is large and you are allowed to freely walk over the ship without the need for a guide, which is very refreshing. The massive engine area was particularly interesting. Very much enjoyed by us and our 4 year old son.
