Since being permanently moored in London since 1971 and becoming an iconic part of the city’s landscape, HMS Belfast has a million stories to tell thanks to its time spent in battle. Launched in 1938, it played a crucial part in the Battle of North Cape, the Artic Convoys and D-Day, which was the last time she was seen in wartime action.
Members of the public are free to jump on board and explore the 9 expansive decks, while discovering the lives and stories of the crew who were lucky enough to work on the ship. You can go 15ft under the Thames in the boiler and engine rooms, or climb up to the flag deck to get a truly sensational 360-degree view of London.
