Portsmouth Historic Dockyard Reviews & Ratings

  • What an interesting place! Allow plenty of time to explore all the amazing ships, hangars and museums. Helpful guides make it so educational with an impressive knowledge of their subjects. I’d recommend buying the annual pass if you can return within the year. We went to the Victory after going to the Mary Rose (priced on a separate ticket) and for me that was enough in a day. We’ll be back to see all the rest another time!

  • Excellent couple of days spent here recently. I highly recommend buying the Full Navy ticket ahead of your visit. This allows you access to Victory, Warrior, M33, all the museums, it includes a harbour tour and a river bus across to the Submarine Alliance as well. The tickets last for one year, will save you some money and allow a more relaxing experience, if you plan your visit across a couple of days. Note, access to the Mary Rose museum requires a separate ticket, which again can be booked online to save a little money.

  • Absolutely fantastic, visited 4 of the attractions and can visit as often as we want to for the next 12 months, with our tickets. We purchased on line and saved money. We will purchase the Mary Rose experience online before we visit again because that is 33%cheaper online. Great value.

  • This place was good over priced though, when I asked the guy what would be a good one for my 18month old to look around he chose victory don't get me enjoyed it but we walked past the horrible histories soft play. Would be better if you could just buy general ticket and decide after which one because we had to make a choice quickly at the till I wanted more information. So feel like we didn't get the most out of the ticket.

  • Lots to see and do. Their is the Mary rose, the Royal Navy museum, ship building museum, the Victory and it's museum and Lot's more and a few shops as well. It is pricey but well Worth the money. There is a lot of walking as it is a big site leave a hole day to look around to see everything and finish the day of with a boat trip round the harbour. A fantastic day out.
