  • The look and atmosphere are there, but only a small amount of the old girl is original, and most of the cannon are made of glassfibre. Very impressive all the same.  more »
  • The ship is very impressive and very lovingly restored. However, you must pay real attention on his head.

  • Very impressive. If you have any interest in anything nautical or historical you should visit the Victory and the numerous other things to be found here. Highly recommended.
  • Great day out, if you know anyone in the services they can get you and 4 others in absolutely free of charge, took my dad and his friends and they loved every minute
  • Respect the way it's preserved but there is no info or description inside. Unless you know your history, you learn nothing.
  • HMS Victory is part of our national heritage and she is fascinating to walk around. The staff are very knowledgeable and have plenty of (sometimes gory) anecdotes about life in Nelson's time. I have been around her many times now, and there is always something new to catch the eye or the imagination. Happy sigh.
  • A historic must-see, the Victory is astonishing and in itself worth a visit to Portsmouth.
