We just had the best time. 2 x adult friends with our 3 boys age 8 and we all loved it. So much to see and do. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great value for money. We took a picnic lunch but so many reasonable places to eat or get a coffee. We only managed to see 4 of the... More

We visited the Dockyard recently and it is a really great attraction; however, the cost of the ticket is too much. £70 for two people! I know it's an annual pass but unless you live within 2 hours or so, the chances of you availing of the annual pass is limited. It takes the entire day to get around (even... More

I can't say any more about this place that is not already covered in the 5 star reviews, its fantastic and deserves more than 5 stars. I checked Groupon before going and was able to get tickets for £19 each, included all attractions and valid for a year, can't believe how much money I saved, so always worth checking online... More

Highlight of the day for me was HMS Victory. Take advantage of the free headsets to get the most out your visit. We wondered around the ship at our own pace and thoroughly enjoyed it. Be careful with the very steep steps and low ceilings but don't be put off because it is well worth it. We did the harbour... More

My husband and I both studied archaeology so are quite happy to interpret exhibits for ourselves. We have both been before around 15 years ago and were prepared for a similar experience. We were completely wrong! The whole thing has been restored and remodels. It's tourist friendly without compromising on the integrity of the history it hosts. We were particularly... More

We buy an annual family pass each year and definitely get our money's worth. There is so much to see and do here, but my kids' favourite (3 & 6) is undoubtedly Action Stations. They love the interactive games and the recent addition of the ninja obstacle course on the upstairs floor is smashing. The climbing wall is great fun... More

Neither me or my boyfriend are boat people but when you're visiting Portsmouth, you kind of have to visit the historic dockyard! We pruchased tickets before we went, getting a pass to all attractions in the dockyard for about £26 each. This works out so much cheaper than buying them individually (about £18 per boat I think). You can also... More

'Er indoors managed to get Dockyard Tickets on offer through a website that she found and I was amazed at how much there is to see in the Dockyard. Mary Rose, Victory to name but two and the recent addition of the WRNS exhibition was an added bonus on the latest visit. Well worth getting an annual Dockyard Ticket as... More
