“Very worthwhile will visit again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

We did not realise how big this was. The good thing is you can re-visit as many times as you wish for 1 year on your ticket, which we will do. You really need a good 4-5 hours to do it justice. Very well kept and most informative. Lots of hardware on display which my husband particularly enjoyed. You will not be disappointed. Also has a cafe on the premises.

“Royal Navy Submarine Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

We had vistited the museum previously but missed out on HMS Alliance as it was undergoing a re-fit, hence this time it was specifically to see it. Absolutely fascinating. Really recommended. A very enthusiastic EX Coxon of sub' took us on our tour. He put life and soul into his presentation. Thank goodness I didn't have to serve in one of those things.
