    I lived through WW2 but we were never taught anything about it at school. However, although I'm not particularly an aviation enthusiast, I learnt so much about that time here. Visited with my adult son while we were on a short holiday. From the outside it's not very impressive and looks quite small but the amount of planes and other history contained there is absolutely fantastic. Expected to be there about 1 hour at the most but spent over 2 hours looking at everything they had to offer and talking to the very knowledgeable volunteers/staff there who were able to answer and explain any question we came up with. I was especially pleased to be able to visit the cinema which was like going back in time. Well worth a second visit should I be near Southampton again.

    I have waited years for the chance to visit the Mary Rose and when I finally got there, I was not disappointed. This is the best museum experience ever, interactive or otherwise. The staff are just lovely and the surrounding exhibits are informative, thoughtful, brilliantly contextual and with just the right amount of detail. Besides the Mary Rose herself, my favourite moment was hearing bubbling broth whilst looking at the massive cauldron and brick hearth. The restoration project is amazing and the visitor is left in awe at seeing a ship that spent 500 years at the bottom of the Solent. I really cannot rate this experience highly enough, plus all the other attractions at the Historic Dockyard. Just make sure you give yourself enough time to really make the most of the Mary Rose.

    Definitely worth seeing! Waited three years after lockdown but really worth it. Our guide, Margaret, was absolutely charming! Full of facts and behind-the-scenes anecdotes. We LOVED the tour, which unexpectedly included a wonderful lunch prepared by the staff, and also a parting gift!

    Be warned there are plenty of stairs and no photos are allowed inside the castle. We were permitted to walk the gardens afterwards.

    We Visited here with our two year old daughter! We all Had a great time, didn’t have to wait too long for any ride or entry into the park! Great attention to detail on every ride. food nice but like any theme park over priced and constant need to spend lots for extras and photos which is okay! We would visit again!

    Our Daughter did cut her lip on peppa car ride as ride came to a sudden stop at the end with no warning signs… so maybe a sign is needed.

    Lots to do! Great for all ages and no height restrictions on most rides which was great as our daughter is very small for her age..

    Visited again after a long time wasn't disappointed. Free parking and after paying English Heritage entrance fee you have access to extensive park land and a beach. There is a shuttle bus for those unable to walk. The house is impressive even if not all was open due to COVID restriction, guides are well informed and willing to chat. The Chalet houses are fascinating with small displays. The terrace garden even in October were colourful with extensive views. There are various places to eat with different menus, overpriced but not unexpected.

    Easy parking at Blackwater, WCs available here. Just passing through so we did the Tall Trees walk. Great to see a couple of Giant Sequoias that are still babies by Californian standards - though still huge!

    Visited with my 12 year old son. Purchased tickets online which was very easy.

    Only 5 min walk from the railway station in one direction and West Quay is 5min in the other direction. There are several car parks close by too.

    The Titanic exhibition is very good. Good balance of information and interactive displays. Tells the story well and sympathetically.

    The other exhibitions are ok but not so interesting.

    Cafe is good for a drink and snack.

    Would recommend for older children.

    We visited on 2 consecutive days as we had the Ultimate Explorer tickets which are valid for a year. On day one we visited HMS Victory and The Mary Rose. On day two we visited HMS Warrior and the National Museum of the Royal Navy. When we had had enough of the museums we caught the harbour tour boat back to Gun Wharf Quays on both days. These boat trips were included in the price of the ultimate explorer ticket. It is worth noting that if you book your tickets on line you might be asked to provide id to prove your identity.

    So nice to walk by the sea. Just be aware that underfoot it’s pebbles which might tire some people out. This is a popular route but not overwhelmingly so. What makes it are the sea views. And the Isle of Wight is so close you can see the windows on the houses!

    This is a very special experience and the opportunity to sail on a working steam ship.
    It should be on everyone’s things to do list.
    The volunteer crew are professional, friendly and go out of their way to make your trip enjoyable.
    The ability to visit areas of the ship such as the bridge and engine room enhances the visit and makes this a very special day to remember.
