HMS Warrior, the ironclad is perhaps overshadowed by Nelsons old ship HMS Victory but it shouldn't be because it was the largest ship in the world at one point. Both ships can easily take a couple of hours to get round if you are into your history. You can tell HMS Warrior is the more ... more

It's impossible to understate the importance of Portsmouth in the history of the United Kingdom. Perhaps not so much in modern times at a time when recent governments have been slashing the Royal Navy to the bare bones but there was a time a good century ago when the culture of the Navy was the very embodiment of all things British. Portsmouth Historic Dockyard is a trip through 450 years of British Naval History. I booked my e-ticket online for £19.50 in advance and this gives access to a variety of attractions. Old ships HMS Victory & HMS Warrior are visitor attractions on their own. HMS Warrior, the ironclad is perhaps overshadowed by Nelsons ... Read the complete review

Our visit to the Historical Dockyard Museum came about, because we once owned a 70-year-old World War Two RAF air sea rescue boat and as a consequent joined an organisation The British Military Powerboat Trust (BMPT). This organisation was formed in 1999, with an object of creating a centre for the restoration of military powerboats. For six years volunteers worked on a number of found national treasures, but unfortunately, due to financial reasons and the site they were working at had a change of ownership, the Trust could no longer continue. After negotiations two of the restored military boats were moved to the Historical Dockyard. Our membership then transferred to Read the complete review

After reading some of the reviews already written, they go into lots of great detail so I won't repeat whats been said, however I thought I'd write a review after recently visiting as there have been some changes.. I purchased an All Inclusive Gift Aid ticket for £19.50 from the historic dockyard website. However after purchasing I then discovered www.visitportsmouth.co.uk who give a 10% discount on the usual price so I'll remember them for future! I purchased my ticket in advance so I received a barcoded printout which I took to the ladies at the ticket desk in the dockyard who exchanged for tickets and I was not required to queue...great ...

Portesmouth Historic dockyard is well wirth a visit with the family. You can catch a train up from the South West UK stopping off at Gun Wharf Quays shopping centre, the dockyard is a short walk up the road. The first thing you notice as you approach the yard are the tall ships of the Victory, Portsmouth is famous because of HMS Victory. This was Nelson's flag ship which fought in the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. There are many other boat's to be seen in this historic dockyard which I will describe. Thereís many flagstones in the dockyard so itís very uneven for wheel & pushchairs, thereís ramps to be used which isnít a bad thing. The way in has two gold ... Read the complete review

Portsmouth Portsmouth, a city with such a celebrated history; it is the birthplace of Charles Dickens, the position at which Nelson and his fleet were based and the position from where Henry VIII watched his most celebrated ship, the Mary Rose plunge to the depths of the Solent. Portsmouth today doesn’t quite have the same splendour, as it’s former glory. Today Portsmouth is famous for the most unattractive building in Britain (official-the Tricorn centre, a wonder to behold) and a millennium project, which has only just gained approval. WHAT PORTSMOUTH HAS TO OFFER HISTORY VISITS It is testament to the cities history that ... Read the complete review
