We decided to visit the HMS Belfast on our last full day in London and we are so happy we did. Not only is the ship in great condition, but there are multiple interactive areas that really add to the experience. We even took a break and enjoyed some snacks inside at the cafe, before venturing further down to the... More

This was an amazing visit to HMS Belfast and really interesting. Lots of ladders so I wouldn't go unless you are reasonably fit and not with young children. Really informative with access to all areas of the ship, audio guide was good and lots of information posted throughout ship. Waxwork figures better than Tussauds! Cannot imagine serving on that ship... More

Full Disclosure: Had little intention of visiting HMS Belfast before we got the London Pass (of which it is a part of). But. . . . . wow! So glad we did! The ship is basically an incredible piece of British, Naval and WWII history, frozen in time. The atmosphere on board was 10/10, it literally feels as if the... More

Fascinating place to visit. Wish we had given ourseves longer onboard, would recomend at least 3 hours and be prepared to climb up and down some pretty narrow ladders/steps. Starting to look a little tatty in places but is well maintained and we shall certainly be paying the Belfast another visit.

Originally launched in 1938 this ship served in WW2 and helped in the Normandy landings. Since 1971 The HMS Belfast has been a museum by The River Thames near Southwark Bridge and London Bridge. Look out for selected weekends when there are activities for children aboard.

England, Great Britain, the Royal Navy. In London it is the most convenient way to include the Navy in your trip and to understand the proud of the British. This impressive cruiser holds a lot of history just across the Tower of London. Within a few minutes you can change sides from the medieval fortification across the 19.ten century Tower-bridge...

Great visit , spent 3 hours looking round, could have done longer. Not cheap but well worth it. The audio units are informative. The standard of the restoration great. Still working on her but this doesn't spoil the trip. There is a small cafe on board but we didn't use it, looked ok thought,
