One of the best attractions we have seen. The presentation of The Victory and the Mary Rose ships and museum were top notch. Make sure you give yourself a full day so that you can see all the attractions and exhibits. The harbour tour is a welcome bonus with the ticket. If you take it in the middle of the day it gives you a rest from walking the exhibits. There are ample eateries on site as well. Highly recommended.
It was amazing, really well organised, we went to the submarine museum, caught the little boat across which was great and you had some lovely views of the port, we also went on board the Mary Rose which is just amazing but the highlight was going on board the Warrior, I have never seen anything like it, so big, we spent quite a while there as there was a lot to see, it was magnificent. Well worth a visit but as other visitors have said you do need more than one day and we will be going again.
Just wonderful. Give yourselves several days to see it all. At least three.
Trip was excellent with Victory, Warrior and marei Rose in close proximity. Marie rose presentaion was clever and informative as was Victory.Grandchildren were impressed.
We had a fantastic day. Arrived around 20 mins before opening time 10am and the queue was already getting quite long. We started with a boat tour to look at The Queen Elizabeth then followed this by visiting the Mary Rose exhibition then a far too quick look at Victory and Warrior. In truth, one day is nowhere near enough time to see everything and we will be returning soon for a much more in depth visit.
Great tour. The harbour tour was very beautiful....the Queen Elizabeth was onsite which was great to see. Totally enjoyed the conducted tour of the onsite rebuild/wood shop. The lady who took us through was extremely knowledgable and fun. Very interesting, as was the whole place. I went out of my way to make this visit happen and was totally impressed. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

Thoroughly enjoyed the trip this weekend. My two grandsons one aged almost 12 and one 8 years old had an amazing time. I had visited before with my husband but we didn't know if it would be a bit over their heads. We needn't have worried. They have asked to go back next year. My husband and I take them away for a weekend every year and this was a real hit.

we had a super time at Portsmouth historic docks following your instructions and sat nav we arrived at the car park on the right no problems a short walk down the road we arrived then showed the ticket which we purchased from TripAdvisor which you can use for a year for free there is so much to do and see you do need 2 days and more we had a great 2 days and will be going back before our ticket runs out it is a lot cheaper to buy your tickets from Trip adviser and we would recommend this trip for anybody we have loads of pictures
The all attraction ticket I brought from viator was very good value for money as most attractions were about 18 pounds per adult ticket. Also I was told at the dockyards that my ticket was usable any time within 12 mths. I will certainly use viator again when I travel.
Mary Rose Museum, the partially rebuilt wreck now fully opened up to view, is breath-taking- an absolute must see. Brought to life by periodic sound effects and projections, it is completely engrossing and very impressive on all the senses. In the galleries opposite the main display are recontructions of what each part of the ship would have been like before it sank. I had to go round three times in one and a half days in Portsmouth and would still go round again if I lived closer. Probably the best ship preservation display in the entire world.
Victory also much improved and expanded compared to years ago. Victory definitely worth a trip.
Warrior Victorian battleship, good too, but not in the same class as Mary Rose or Victory.
Boatyard 4 is worth poking your nose into on your way past. It's a working museum with all sorts of craft being or already restored.
You have to go to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard before you die!
Fantastic time, so much to see. I've been back twice and still not seen it all. I will go again too.
HMS warrior was amazing as was HMS Victory. They give you av real sense of what it was like to live and work on board. The restoration of the Mary Rose is fantastic.
This was a great deal since each attraction normally requires a separate ticket. Our boys were interested and had a chance to burn off some youthful energy at the Action Stations exhibit. HMS Victory, of course, was a highlight, given all the history.
An excellent day out. So much to see. Worth every penny, especially since the ticket allows for a return within the year.

Well worth a visit if in Portsmouth or the surrounding area.
This ticket was excellent value for money and having bought online meant we didn't have to stand in an extremely long queue waiting to get in.
You will however need ID for all people in your party as this has to be shown at the entrance desk.
Well worth taking the water taxi across to the submarine museum in Gosport to see 'Alliance' and 'Holland 1'.
Allow half a day to see the Mary Rose, amazing!
Booking and paying on viator made our visit to the Historic Dockyard so easy and relaxed. We also get to return, free of charge anytime within the next 12 months. This is great as we didn't fit everything in, during our visit. Definitely great value.
Booked tickets on line and collected from the dockyard office all easy going. We took two days for our visit around the dockyard and still did'nt see everything. A truly amazing experience wish we could have had longer. The ticket is for a year only wished we lived nearer. Best to buy before you go as it was 20 cheaper well worth the money.
As a Henry VIII fan, I was looking forward to the Mary Rose exhibition and ended up spending so much time in there I didn't get to see everything but did the main things I was interested in but really enjoyed my day down from London. There is so much to see it is easily fills a day. I was interested in this sort of thing though. I also spent time at the Emirates Spinnaker Tower as well. I would go again to see the other things I missed. The train station isn't that far away and you can do it as a day trip from London.
On this visit we only had time to go to the new Mary Rose exhibit. This was totally fantastic and not to be missed. It has to be the best planned and constructed museum exhibit that I have ever seen, very absorbing and you need to allow 2 hours just for this.
My only criticism is that the ticket office could not handle the e-ticket so it is best to bring a printed ticket voucher. We had to email a screenshot of the e-ticket to the guy at the desk, that he could then use as a paper voucher!
Tickets are valid for 1 year so we plan on multiple visits to get full value from the ticket, there is simply loads to see.
Excellent value, especially the Victory tour and the Mary Rose exhibition. I would suggest an early start as there's so much to see, also do some background reading into the history of the Battle of Trafalgar and the Tudor navy will give more context.
Worth the wait to get inside. Mary Rose experience was excellent.
Fantastic day out .we'll presentations lots of places to stop and sit excellent value for money .plus the ticket is valued for 1 year so you can take your time and do over a couple of days or go back to Portsmouth for another trip .
