SEE THE ‘IRON MARVEL’ FOR YOURSELF
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!Visit Website
