HMS Belfast online: information and bookings

HMS Belfast is a cruiser. She was launched in March 1938 and served throughout the Second World War, playing a leading part in the destruction of the German battlecruiser "Schanhorst" at the Battle of the North Cape and in the Normandy Landings. After the war, she supported United Nations forces in Korea and remained in service with the Royal Navy until 1965.

In 1971 she was saved for the nation as a unique and historic reminder of Britain's naval heritage in the first half of the twentieth century.

A free ticket/guide leaflet is available to help you find your way around this huge and complex warship and your tour will take you from HMS Belfast's Quarterdeck up to the top of her Bridge and all the way down through nine decks to her massive Boiler and Engine Rooms, well below the ship's waterline.

On your way, you will be able to see inside her triple 6-inch gun turrets; operate her light anti-aircraft guns; explore the heavily armoured Shell Rooms and Magazines and experience what life was like for her crew by visiting the cramped Messdecks, Officers' Cabins, Galley and Sick Bay.
