It is many moons since last I wrote about a ship, that being the S.S. Great Britain, which given the slightest opportunity, I urge you to visit in Bristol. Why mention that here? Well, there are many similarities between the two preserved ships and, I rather suspect that, an enthusiast of ... Read review

HMS WARRIOR - ONE OF OUR GREATEST NATIONAL ATTRACTIONS Diamond review Review with images

AdvantagesAuthenticity. History. Experience. Educational. Setting. Photogenic.

DisadvantagesCrowded in Summer.

"...ocean going liner, Isaac Watts’ HMS Warrior being the first Iron Clad Warship. If it were possible to look at the two ships side by side, anyone could be forgiven for assuming that they were contemporaries, in fact they were built and launched almost a generation apart – the Great Britain in Bristol in 1843 and the Warrior in Blackwall, on the Thames in London, in 1860. The fact that the two technically similar, but completely diverse in purpose, ..." Read review

Short-lived Queen of the Seas Review with images

AdvantagesInsight into the progression of warship design

DisadvantagesNone - but as a ship, not easily accessible for those of restricted mobility

"...as she does close to HMS Victory it's interesting to compare the stats, side by side. Warrior was laid down on 25 May 1859 and launched in December 1860, just under 100 years since the Victory first hit the water. Ship design and construction had moved on in those hundred years. Her overall length is 418 feet (compared to the Victory's 227), but only 58 feet in the beam (compared with Victory's 50ft). Her top speed was 13 knots under sail, ..." Read review

Stepping on a British warship

Advantagesmany to see.

Disadvantagesnone for me.

"...11 September 2010 I visited HMS Warrior 1860 for first time. Brief history about HMS Warrior 1860: HMS Warrior 1860 was built in the late 19th century and was the largest, fastest and more power warship in the world. However it never fired in any field and ten years later the technology was out-of -date. What did I see: First I saw a black giant ship parking on the harbour. At the upper deck I saw a 26-ton propeller which could be ..." Read review

HMS Warrior Review with images

AdvantagesVery intresting, stair -lift for disabled people

DisadvantagesLow celinged, windy corners

"HMS Warrior pride of Queen Victoria is one of the last surviving iron clad ships made by Isembard kingdom Brunel. If you don't know who he is, he was the designer of the Clifton suspension bridge in Bristol. She joined the fleet in 1860 as part of Britain's answer to a troubled peace with France - & worries over French naval plans. Warrior could be driven by both steam & sail, her crew were about 700 men, they were: 42 officers 3 warrant officers ..." Read review

More about HMS Warrior

AdvantagesGreat real-time history

DisadvantagesA little difficulty if you are disabled

"As an ex-Royal Navy man this ship has always fascinated me. I have been a supporter for around 18 years and although (through distance - I live in the Midlands) I have only been able to visit a few times and being disabled didn't always make it easy, I think this is a truly wonderful ship restored to a really high level and manned by volunteers who are totally committed to its preservation and extremely keen to pass on their enthusiasm to all showing ..."
