  • Visited HMS victory as part of day visit to the historic dockyard. There are so many things to see and squeeze into a day. It's probably best to do it over two days. If you live locally you can come back many times as your ticket lasts for a year. Over all really interesting attractions covering the royal navy through the years. Highly recommend
  • This is an amazing ship! It really allows your imagination to take you back in time and really see what a difficult life it would have been on a ship like this. To be able to walk where admiral Nelson has walked is just amazing. If you like history I would highly recommend visiting this place
