HMS Belfast, London

4.5
Permanently moored on the River Thames, HMS Belfast is a museum ship open to the public. Access to the ship is via the footpath on the south bank of the river. A walkway connects the footpath to the ship's quarterdeck. Onboard, you'll visit nine decks all restored by the Imperial War Museum and thematically divided into three sections: a taste of seamen's daily lives; the boiler room, engine room, and communication and mechanical functions of the ship; and the admiral's bridge, operations room, and gun direction platform. In between these quartered-off sections, look for exhibits commemorating the ship's war service and personal stories of those who served aboard.

  • The HMS Belfast feels like a 50 year old time capsule. You walks through it and it seems the crew has just left everything behind and disappeared. The audioguide is very well done and the witness acco...  more »
  • You cannot enter a retired warship every day. Therefore, it is worth visiting HMS Belfast in London. The ship entered service in 1939 and was used during World War II, d.c. on D-Day and in the destruction of the German battleship Scharnhorst. In the Korean War, it was again involved in warfare in the early 1950s. Today, the ship is open to the public. The tour with the audio guide is very worthwhile. You learn so much about the history, equipment and equipment of the ship. You should plan about 2 hours so that you can see everything in peace. On board there is also a café with outdoor terrace.

  • What a great Ship to discover! I really loved it. You get offered a lot for the pretty cheap price. Everything is very well displayed, you can not only discover it by eyes and listening the stories of the audio guide but you can also touch almost everything and climb small ladders to discover also the last corner of the ship. Amazing! It also offered a great view over London.
  • Simply incredible. The level of engineering that went into building it, especially considering this was nearly 80 years ago, is stunning. We spent 3 hours exploring all the corners of the ship. To be honest,I was a bit skeptical when a member of staff told us they've got excellent toilets. He was right- they've got modern,clean and well maintained toilets on board.
