Visitor Reception Centre

A galvanized steel framed building with glazed outer skin and corrugated metal roof, designed to echo the simple lines and functional nature of other Dockyard buildings. Its interior provides a large open area for visitors to gather information and purchase tickets, and there is a Costa Coffee shop at the seaward end of the building with fine views of HMS Warrior and the harbour.
