The Historic Dockyard is a fantastic place to visit. Walking up towards it with HMS Warrior on your left adds to the atmosphere as you get to the entrance. The staff are helpful and friendly. If the coastal wind starts to chill you, call into the Costa and get a hot drink whilst looking over the imposing figure of HMS Warrior. Make sure you take some change for the parking machines though, some accept card but most don't. Not the Dockyards fault so still 5* from me
Great museum. Lots for kids to do. Adults to look at. There is climbing, boats, the Mary rose, battleships old and new. Play at being a marine. Run an assault course. Great place and the repeat visit entrance means you can have a whole year to visit everything. Well worth the entrance fee. Simply amazing place.
