What an amazing place the dockyard is. My favourite is the Mary Rose Museum. You really need more than a day to fit in all that is available to explore. The boat trip around the harbour is fascinating , and the other ships, HMS Victory and the Warrior, are unique in there own .

You learn a lot of history and have the chance to see and visit those ships which played central roles in important wars, such as the battle of Trafalgar

Stayed at the Premier Inn, City Centre, just a 15 minute walk from the Dockyard. On Saturday we took the harbour tour, about 45 minutes, which had an excellent and interesting live commentary.

Fair price for what was included - £35 gets you into all the attractions and is valid for a year! We thought we would be able to do it in 2 hours but how wrong we were! We covered HMS Victory, HMS Warrior and The Mary Rose - and we had to rush the last bit!! Very very interesting and... More

We paid for entry to this area alongside paying for the Spinnaker tower, therefore we visited HMS Victory which was amazing and also the museum.

Excellent patient staff on all attractions. Grandchildren loved the Ninja Warrior assault course and the climbing wall. Lots to do recommend an annual pass because not enough time to fit everything in.
