Owner description: As you arrive at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, the stunning sleek, black lines of Britain's first iron-hulled, armoured warship, take your breath away. Warrior, launched in 1860, was the pride of Queen Victoria's fleet. Powered by steam and sail, she was the largest, fastest and most powerful ship of her day and had a profound effect on naval architecture. Warrior was, in her time, the ultimate deterrent. Yet within a few years she was obsolete. Restored and back at home in Portsmouth, Warrior now serves as a ship museum, monument, visitor attraction, private venue and more. Open all year round, we invite you to experience her for yourself. Open daily from 10.00am except 24th, 25th & 26th December

This really is a huge ship, especially when you end up in the "Citadel" at the bottom. I can see why all other destroyers became obsolete when she was launched

Huge ship. Loved exploring it. The ramps up and down to the Warrior were rather steep but as I said "huge ship". Friendly guide on board to answer questions.

This is worth a visit much larger than it looks and below there is lots to see. Plenty of guides to help with any questions

We visited the HMS Warrior after a tour through the HMS Victory. The technological advancement from one to the other (in a mere 50 yrs) is astounding! The Warrior is spacious and crew accommodations, fighting decks and military might are vastly better than its forebears. The tour through the ship is wide open and all decks and compartment may be accessed through open doorways and stairways. Helpful guides are stationed throughout to provide an explanation or historical context for the visitor. I was much happier here than at Victory and felt the Warrior is presented in a much more authentic manner (except for the replica cannon...).

Highly recommended ++++

Beautifully kept, and with an interesting history. A contrast to The Mary Rose and the Victory. Once again the guides were good and very helpful. It is now used as a wedding venue.
