We really enjoyed seeing HMS Belfast. It's a unique experience to walk around a piece of preserved history and imagine how the ship would have operated all those years ago. Very impressive how something so complex was designed and built at a time without computers. We visited at the start of December and it was quiet on board which was nice. Fairly easy to spend 3 hours onboard looking at things.

The Belfast was great, we all enjoyed it very much! I had been since I was a child and it has been vastly improved since then.

We were spending a day by ourselves and had seen the ship when we went to tower bridge so looked like a cool thing for my 15yr old son and I to do. My son's favorite part was the shell room and mine was the main floor seeing all the day to day things we do at home. It was an impressive and eye opening experience, really glad we took the time to do it!

Everything went as planned and no issues, only concern I had was printing out the tickets for the London Bridge as it said the E-ticket wouldn't be accepted. We had issues wat the hotel with connection to print and had a slight panic... but we got there in the end. It would be beneficial to allow the eticket to be used, especially if you booked these on the day whilst out and about. Other wise it was perfect and would use your service again.

A Historical Ship Journey

HMS Belfast is a museum ship, originally a Royal Navy light cruiser, permanently moored in London on the River Thames and operated by the Imperial War Museum. Launched on St. Patrick’s day in 1938, she is the only surviving ship of her type to have been active during World War II and the Korean War. One of the most powerful large light cruisers ever built, she served with distinction in both these wars.

HMS Belfast, in 1978 was converted into a museum, citing the ship as “a unique demonstration of an important phase of British history and technology”. Book this family experience as this is a unique chance to come down to the Thames and explore nine decks of seafaring history onboard the HMS Belfast.

A Warship Full of Memories

During the visit, you will get to see different parts of the ship. Each of its decks and rooms offer fascinating stories. With an audio-guide for company, you will learn all about the history of this ship from Arctic Convoys to D-Day, its role in the Cold War and beyond. The magnitude of operations that were undertaken on this ship become visible to you when you visit the cockpit, the captain's cabin, and the cannons used to fight against the enemy. You also get a first-hand account of World War II in the form of interesting anecdotes given by wartime veterans.
