It was built in Chatham Dockyard, quite close to me, and the building is still intact. I haven’t visited the Victory since my secondary school days and really must get down there …

over all me and my boyfriend realy enjoyed looking round this ship but we hit a small snag he is 6foot tall and had to keep ducking because there are low beams EVERY where !! and i would warn people with bad backs to may be think before going on to the lower decks. that even if you are short you will still have to duck to git down some of the stairs and this gave me realy bad back ache the worst part is right at the bottom of the ship me and my boyfriend may well just walked on our knees as it was that low so be warned!! the ship is in a very good shape plenty to see but unlike hms warrior you are not allowed to touch most of the things on the ship which was a shame and you have to follow the route marked you cant just wonder round.
A must see attraction if you are visiting Portsmouth.
The guided tour is brilliant and our guide made it entertaining for both kids and adults.
There is a real sense of history as you walk around the ship.
It really is awesome and a visit is best combined with other events on offer in the Historic Dockard to make it a great day out!
If your coming to Portsmouth do not leave until you have visited Nelson’s Flagship HMS Victory. You will not be dissappointed when you stop by, with a tour onboard the battle of Trafalgar museam ship and the views from the harbour are fantastic.
If your intrested in Naval history this is the first point of call. This is an attraction for all the family, reasonably priced. Fun for all.
I have seen this ship many times. Each time I am still left in awe of its beauty. The rigging is a work of art. It is 26 miles long, if stretched in a line! Its a shame they have no sails. It was £12 to go on the ship and visit the museum. On this occasion I didn’t stump up the cash. I think its a bit pricey!
Apparently Nelsons great,great,great,great grandson John Tribe had just visited the ship in June. I wonder if he was as short and great looking as his ancester?
In storehouse 10 it is possible to see remnants of the original sail. It shows the battle damage inflicted upon it during battle.
