  • Amazing place to visit for the whole family. Too much to see in one day so it's good that your ticket is valid for a year. I can imagine that it could get really busy but it was quiet when we went. HMS Victory is incredible and such an important part of British history. You can actually walk all round the whole ship and see where Nelson died. The Mary Rose is spectacular even though it's a wreck. The way it has been displayed is stunning and seeing her is quite a haunting experience. The other, lesser known ships are just as fascinating so i would highly recommend a visit.

  • I bought tickets for the Historic Dockyard for my husband's big birthday. The ticket covers everything and is is valid for as many visits as you want for a year. We have so far visited the Victory and the Mary Rose exhibition. Brilliant! History brought to life. Clearly a lot of thought and effort has gone into preserving these wonderful pieces of history and how best to present them to the public. Maintaining these treasures must be very costly and requires public support through tickets sales, donations etc but I have little doubt that support will continue with the high standard set at the Dockyard. We were lucky enough to go when it was quiet. There seem to be lots of cafes, toilets etc and plenty of staff to guide you around and tell you about the exhibitions. The Trafalgar Experience was lovely with interactive exhibitions like reading the signals and building the Hull of a ship. There is a lot of walking but it is well worth the tired legs at the end of the day. Please go you won't be disappointed.

  • Very interesting visit. Disabled parking further away than anticipated. Recommend dropping off anyone with walking difficulties before parking. Mary Rose and the Victory were well worth the visit. There are wheelchairs available for use but some areas are quite difficult to push over. We did see there were also electric buggies (possibly for hire) although no=one told us this when we borrowed the wheelchair!

  • An excellent, full day, family activity venue. Lots to see and do. The harbour tour is well worth a trip. Ladies if your inclined go on harbour tour and get dropped off at the shops, while the men enjoy the ships. Great for naval historical museums. To get the most out of the day, arrive just before the gate opens and take advantage of a full day sightseeing. I've never been able to see everything in one day, so a good reason to use your ticket again, as it's valid for 12 months. Enjoy.

  • Brilliant value we had a daily mail offer. Really interesting staff were brilliant so keen to help and tell you about exhibits. The harbour cruise was fun made interesting by commentary. Mary Rose exhibit was so well laid out made you feel part of the ships company. You can revisit as many times as you like for a year. Wonderful value. 3rd visit on Tuesday 13th March this year this place is amazing still not seen it all. Fantastic for kids and staff are so knowledgeable it is worth more than 5 *s
