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. Put HMS Belfast and other London attractions into our London travel itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • An original warship that was used e.g. on D-Day and in the Korean War. It has been out of service since 1970. It is very interesting how 800 crew were lived and fed on board. Attention: Several steep and narrow ladders must be used. In different areas there is the original fragrance - e.g. kitchen, dentist. Absolutely worth seeing, two hours you should plan mincestens.

  • 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.
