We had high expectations for this visit and to some extent, they were met. However, even with a discounted £68 Family Annual Pass, it was obviously too much to expect all exhibits to be functioning as they should. Particularly disappointing was the Action Stations building...More

Portsmouth Historic Dockyard is a great day out - although impossible to fit everything in to one day. Particular highlights are obviously Victory and Warrior but the exhibitions are very interesting. I particularly enjoyed the history of tattoos exhibition recently. The live music / entertainment...More

I love Portsmouths history and the docklands have it all. Research annual tickets online, there’s deals to be had ! You need three days to get the most from it.
