HMS Warrior 1860 Reviews
the tour guides and characters onboard were buzzing with information and totally made this experience for us! more »
There are guides on board in period costume who really bring this ship to life. The stoker in the boiler room and the officer in the ward room were particularly good. Great fun more »
Fabulous piece of living history and great fun to explore. The reason for the missing star is that there are no information panels / labels to explain what anything is / does. In fairness there are knowledgeable volunteers around to ask if you wish.
I can't praise this enough. They give you so much access to the ship. And she is stunning to behold. Well worth the time and the money to go and see her.
