  • We went to the dockyard primarily to see Mary Rose, but in fact this was probably better. The talks inside from ex submariners made it very Real, and it was so so interesting. Thank you for giving us ...  more »
  • Have to take a tour . Our tour included unruly child. Shame. Top marks for Peter the guide for self control. Sub nice to see around and get idea of life under the sea.  more »
  • Very cool WWII ear sub though it didn't actually serve in WWII. But it is a cold war vetran. The sub isn't big so you can go through it pretty good quick. We only had a few minutes before the last ferry back to the Portsmouth historic dockyards but the staff was incredibly accommodating and rushed us though so we could see all of it. The tour guild was very knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating.
  • Fascinating museum. Interesting tour guides. Lots to see and do. Well worth a visit.
  • This is a great family day out, and you get to go on board the submarine.
  • A truly unique attraction, HMS Alliance is a preserved World War II Royal Navy submarine, accesible with a guided tour. The tour guide, a former Royal Navy submariner, was hilarious, friendly and very knowledgeable. It is worth noting that there is no disabled access to the submarine, and conditions inside are extremely cramped. I would not recommend the (rather long) tour to those uncomfortable with confined spaces and loud noise. If these things do not bother you, HMS Alliance provides a fascinating experience of the frankly horrible conditions endured by submariners during World War II. Tours are regular, and are booked from the museum's main buildings.
  • Interesting tour. Pretty cramped. You're pushed by people behind you.
