Hms Warrior 1860 - Review
The pride of Queen Victoria’s naval fleet, the Warrior is the first iron hulled, armored warship that takes a place of pride at the Portsmouth dockyard. HMS Warrior was said to be the fastest and sleekest ship running on steam and sail. It is truly fascinating to see this huge vessel restored in all its glory. The ship also serves as a private venue for special occasions. Take time and explore this ship right down to the boiler room to discover the technology of the 19th century. There are many guides in the ship who will help you out with any information that you might need. The ship is a great piece from history and definitely worth a visit.

Hms Warrior 1860, Portsmouth Reviews
Very impressive. Bristling with fire power. A fabulous display of naval might. If you like warships then this is a real treat. All the decks radiate with weapons. The most powerful ship that never fired a shot in anger. Pristine quality. As to be expected, restoration work is ongoing.
I love this ship! Has an amazing story to tell. It's so well laid out and engaging for the children, too. The staff are fabulous and helpful. I will say, there ARE toilets on board. It wasn't very clear but no need togo hiking across the dockyard. Well worth a visit
This has to be at the top of anyone's visit to the Dockyards, its importance in naval history cannot be underestimated. The ship has been restored to its original condition giving visitors an insight as to what it would have been like to serve on this ship. Compared to HMS Victory, the amount of space on this ship is amazing, and the layout of the displays is really interesting from the guns decks down to the powder stores and the storage area for the crew's belongings.
What a lovely old ship. Built in 1860 it was the Navy's 1st iron clad steam ship. The boiler room had at least 20 furnaces. Unimaginable how hot it would be to work there. Apart from being made from metal the layout of the ship seems to mirror the old wooden ones. Spent a good hour here. Most enjoyable.
Well worth a visit, the HMS Warrior is an impressive ship. We visited recently one evening, attending a gin and rum festival and had a wonderful time, exploring the ship and tasting the gin and rum. Warrior can be visited at anytime with a dockyard pass, which also includes HMS Victory, the royal naval meseum and dockyard boat trip amongst other things.
