  • fantastic experience, amazing being able to walk around the ship and get a real feel of what it was like to live in those surroundings 
  • The interior of the ship was explained very well by the guide. An interesting insight into life on board an historic warship. 
  • A massive treat to stand on Nelson's flagship. A truly unique experience and very well laid out tour onboard. Mind your head on the beams.

  • 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.
