I visited this old warship on the bank of the River Thames and found it enjoyable. I found many kids from schools coming from Europe and UK visiting the ship as well. We had a good time and informative visit.

The HMS Belfast is berthed on the South Bank of the Thames, a few hundred yards from the instantly recognisable Tower Bridge. It is a proud and sometimes sombre reminder of the conflict that claimed thousands of lives in the North Atlantic, and has been...More

After walking by this ship numerous times over the years I finally visited. There is a lot to see onboard and you do get access to most areas. The lower decks are accessed via very steep ladders. There are signs posted that these ladders should...More

We were pleasantly surprised by how much of the ship was accessible, the layout gives you a really good idea about what life onboard would have been like and lots of interesting stories too. Definitely recommend a visit!

Very interesting piece of history. You can see that such a shop was was practicly a small town. The soldiers spent on it a few months and must have f.e. dentist or tailor. Everything is so well reconstructed and was interesting for our teenage son....More

I think not. On the deck of the ship it’s just fine. But all the good stuff are inside. In order to have access you have to use very very steep ladders. In some cases the hatches are so small that I could not pass carrying a... More
