Your visit to the Submarine Museum

"Easily the best attraction in the area...we’ll be back!” 

“Fabulous and so interesting. Everyone was so engaging. Will return with the grandchildren” – Mick Neecham, Northampton

A great family day out in Gosport.

Come on board. Share the secret of living under the sea.

Visit HMS Alliance, newly restored after a £7m refit and ready for patrol! Assault all of your sense by walking on board HMS Alliance, the only remaining WW2 era British ocean going submarine.

Meet the crew...

Meet a submariner and hear his stories of living on board a submarine. Find out what it was like to face danger underwater, to share jokes in cramped conditions and how to feed a crew of 65 from a gallery the size of a broom cupboard.

“Almost made you feel part of the crew”

Dive, Dive, Dive Deeper

Go on board the very first Royal Navy submarine Holland 1, built in 1901 crewed by only 8 men and 3 mice! Peer in to X24, the only midget submarine to have survived from WW2.

“The best museum I’ve ever been to”




“My grandson loved it”
