  • Tickets are valid for a year from purchase. Always a long queue to get in- even if you've brought tickets online (much cheaper): not great in bad weather. Ticket discounts available for students and families. Parking nearby is reasonable for city centre. You're free to wander with ticket checkers at the major attractions. Food was a bit expensive- but what you'd expect for a tourist attraction. Some hand made stuff in the Mary Rose cafe which was nice. Space to sit and eat outside. Toilets in good condition A gift shop in the Victory was a bit jarring, it lost some of the 'authentic' feel- seems they're moving more to really milking the profits. Lots of the smaller, older exhibitions seemed to have been moved or put away to. Mary Rose exhibition- the lighting made it difficult to see details at times. If you're really into naval history you could easily spend a day or two here. Others, not as long, maybe a day at most?

  • The Historic Dockyard is well worth a visit and has improved drastically over the past ten years with lottery money. The old ships are well presented and the museums well worth a visit. It is best to go on special event days that happen throughout the year especially near Christmas. It can be quite expensive but a ticket includes returning for over two years which can be well worth doing to spend more time in particular areas. The Dockyard has also played an important role in organising volunteers from around the area and supporting vital heritage conservation. I would recommend a visit.

  • A wonderful place to visit. We spent three days here and still didn't get to see it all so will have to go back. Your ticket purchase entitles you to as many visits as you like for a calendar year so very good value for money. Something for everyone to enjoy inside too. I am really hard pressed to pick out any one thing as being better or more interesting than another but would say that the Mary Rose Exhibition exceeded our expectations.

  • What an amazing day we have had. We saw the Mary Rose for the first time and were so impressed with the museum. It is beautifully done and loved the fact that there are volunteers dotted around to help the kids understand more about the ship. We also never tire of visiting HMS Victory! There is so much to see here and with tickets that last for a year, we will definitely be back very soon.

  • Awesome attractions - a great place with lots to do, a family friendly site to visit for fun and learning about our incredible naval history! Parts of the site have been updated, including newer attractions making the site more accessible for all. It's well worth purchasing a year ticket to have access to all attractions, there is so much you definitely can't fit it all in one trip - my personal highlights include Mary Rose Museum, Victory and the Harbour Tour (always best on a sunny day), saying that all attractions are fantastic! Don't forget the camera! Remember Queen Elizabeth docks here too now!
