HMS Warrior

HMS Warrior

HMS Warrior is unique and undoubtedly one of the most sought after locations on the South Coast. The ship is able to accommodate a wide range of events, from a breakfast meeting for 10 to a sit down dinner for 288 or cocktails and finger-buffet for up to 600 (capacity includes use of upper deck and therefore based on warmer months hire).

Guests will have the opportunity to tour the ship and talk to the knowledgeable Quartermasters and guides who will be on hand to answer questions. On fine summer evenings, pre-dinner drinks may be taken on the upper deck with views across Portsmouth harbour, before moving below to dine and absorb the special atmosphere of this Victorian ship.

HMS Warrior is a spectacular choice for those looking for a venue with a difference. Suitable for summer parties, networking events, dinners and receptions. Available to hire from 6PM daily.

    The Massive Gun Deck, the fighting citadel of the ship, is an ideal setting for those in search of a venue with a difference for the larger gathering. Having wandered four decks of the ship, with Quartermasters and guides on hand to provide information for the enquiring mind, guests then take dinner on the Gun Deck in unique surroundings, absorbing the 1860 atmosphere where six hundred Victorian sailors worked, ate and slept. Between 60 and 288 guests can dine at mess tables between the broadside guns with their firing equipment overhead and close-quarter fighting arms alongside. For more casual standing buffets up to 600 can be accommodated and the Upper Deck with it’s magnificent views of Portsmouth Harbour provides an excellent location for cocktail parties or pre dinner drinks when the weather permits.
