A great 'foil' to the stature of both Victry & Warrior this little workhouse the M33 show what like was like for oridnary 'tars' during Galipoli and WW1. The starkness of the interior really brings home the hardships of being a sailor 100 years ago.

Somewhat more modern than the more famous ships in the Historic Dockyard, HMS M.33 is one of only 3 surviving ships from the first world war. There is a short video, telling of the story of M.33 and the Gallipoli campaign of 1915-16. It's been...More

Interesting First World War cruiser. Very utilitarian and basic and it's unrestored interior adds to it's realism. Makes you realise how lucky we are now.

Informative guides on board giving you the history of the ship but free to wander on your own. Well worth a visit when in the historic dockyard.

We almost missed this little ship down in its dock and probably wouldn’t have bothered to go onto it if another visitor hadn’t pointed it out to us. My husband eyes lit up when he saw it so on we went, I thought it would...More

One of the few remaining ships of this type, not built to last, it is a reminder of the tough life of a sailor on board a rather small ship. Designed for close-in support, it did spend time near Turkey during WWI.
