When HMS Warrior was launched in 1860, she was the first ocean-going iron-hulled battleship in the world, the largest, fastest and most powerful of her time. For ten years she served England as a first-line warship, until improved engine designs and newer armour-plated ships rendered her obsolete.
After years as a depot ship and floating oil jetty she was moved to Portsmouth historic dockyard and opened to the public as a museum ship.

We visited HMS Warrior on a cloudy day in December 2007. I took many pictures, although this was not the best time to take photos. If you click on a photo you will get that photo in high resolution. These high-resolution photos show much detail, despite the poor light.
The Science Museum in London on our visit at the same time had a large model of the Warrior.
