Well worth a visit if in Portsmouth, the different ships and exhibits cater for all ages and interests, the submarine part was probably my favorite part

It's vast, you probably won't do it in a day. It's worth the ticket, go. It's more adult orientated rather than kids. Chatham Historic Dockyard is, in my opinion, better but this is fab
