HMS Holland 1
Come and see the first ever submarine commissioned by the Royal Navy at the Royal Submarine Museum.
When you step aboard Holland 1 you get a glimpse of what it would have been like to live and work aboard the Royal Navy’s most experimental and cutting-edge technological innovation of 1901.
You will discover the significant impact Holland 1 has on the Royal Navy and how she was a pioneer that revolutionised naval warfare.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t all glory for Holland 1 as the boat sank in 1913 while being towed to breakers yard.
Holland 1 was recovered in 1982 and has since undergone an extensive programme of conservation to preserve this significant vessel.
Now she is proudly displayed at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum as a symbol of innovation for the Royal Navy.
