New discoveries await

The contrast between old and new has never been so distinct. See HMS Warrior up close as you learn about the Victorian ingenuity behind its construction or visit HMS M.33, one of only three British warships from the First World War still in existence.

Explore the dockyard by water

Get up close to Royal Navy giants by water on a Harbour Tour. Feel the sea spray in your hair and see a working dockyard as you learn about the ships and surrounding area. There's plenty of opportunities to take photos of HMS Queen Elizabeth*, the UK's largest aircraft carrier alongside in Portsmouth Naval Base.
