Possibly the most famous Royal Navy ship. The Victory has been wonderfully restored and has to be the must-see attraction at the Historic Dockyards. If you want a bit of a guide then you can get a handheld auto guide, though we took our own...More

The Victory has been renovated recently. I can’t think there’s been an improvement. There are no information cards to explain the items on display. Don’t even know which was Nelson’s cabin. Perhaps signs will be added shortly?

There is no tour. the price is difficult as entrance to the site is complicated. You pay for so many attractions once inside the museum. Pay for 1, 3, etc, etc. It has got quite expensive over recent years.
