This tour is fun for the whole family! Not only was it educational, but it was also amazing to see history right in front of you. The staff was really nice and professional and my kids had fun searching for the dog "Vicky" throughout the ship. We had a great time!

This is a true piece of wartime history. I had no idea the importance of this battleship, so am truly grateful to have been able to visit and learn so much about her.

Great, although it would have been better if you could see more of the ship, not least inside one of the turrets.
