The victory is a fantastic visit. The audio tour is excellent and the staff around the ship were also very Knowledgeable and added extra info if asked. Just bear in mind they weren't very tall back then so if you are 6 foot plus prepare to do quite a lot of bending. But don't let that put you off

Nice easy ticket purchase

The website to purchase the tickets was East you navigate and i got the tickets promptly. My only disappointment was that the site visited was unable to easily process the ticket with the QR code provided. There was a long winded process of converting the ticket manually in their computer. Why is the point in having an electronic ticket (bar code or QR) when the site can’t process it. Needs fixing!

A wonderful & informative day out for all the family.

While we couldn’t fault the whole experience of the dockyard, we were rather frustrated by the entry system. We had pre booked our tickets before going, & were confused as to why we then had to queue up again to get another ticket to go in. It was very busy & very hot so was not a good start to the day. It would be much better if there was a separate queue for people who had pre booked to speed things up a bit. Other than that we really couldn’t fault the facilities on offer. We particularly enjoyed the self guided tour on the Victory.
