Portsmouth Historic Dockyard – HMS Warrior

Victory Gate, HM Naval Base, Portsmouth, PO1 3LJ

Experience the golden age of steam aboard HMS Warrior, the crown jewel of the Victorian Navy.

Transport yourself back in time to the heyday of the Royal Navy and mingle with a crew of colourful characters as you explore this genuine icon, reimagined exactly as she was in 1863, and still fully afloat some 150 years later. Join Victorian tourists as you stroll along the top-deck, chat with the crew as they go about their duties, or venture down into the engine rooms get to grips with the machinery that revolutionised the Royal Navy.

HMS Warrior was Britain’s first iron-hulled, armoured battleship. Launched in 1860, when Britain’s dominance in trade and industry was at its peak, HMS Warrior was the pride of Queen Victoria’s fleet.

This new type of battleship signalled a significant evolution in the Royal Navy, being the first departure from traditional wooden ships. Despite being steam-powered HMS Warrior was also fitted with masts and enough sails to cover 13 tennis courts!
