  • A ship under refit there is still a lot of work going on to rebuild and conserve much of this ship. That being the case you are able to see a large amount of original detail. Staff are excellent and knowledgable and the ship itself fascinating. I can't wait to return when it's all finished.
  • Very cool Victoria war ship! We worth the trip!! HMS Victory is the crown jewel of the museum but the warrior is an excellent addition!
  • Love the Warrior and the fact you can walk around inside it - have also been lucky enough to attend a couple of weddings on there too! Brilliant venue
  • Great ship to visit on your day out. Recommended!
  • Brilliant. Helpful and knowledgeable staff and volunteers. A must!
