  • 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
  • This ship is very underated and well worth making the time to visit. Way ahead of its time, sympathetically restored to a high standard.
  • Not a big history guy but found the multiple layers of the ship's physical layout and history an interesting exploration.
  • Underrated part of the historic dockyards; everyone goes for the Victory but for my money the Warrior is more impressive. It's bigger and more fun to explore. The guides on board were very knowledgeable and more than willing to answer questions. Only problem as usual is the price - though the tickets do last a year.
