I've been before and this time took a friend. It really is fascinating to see how a warship of this era functioned. Well worth the ticket price - if you're not careful you could spend the entire day here.

Good exhibit. Free audio tour device gave more information than what was provided on the description cards posted throughout the ship. Access was provided from top to bottom except on level at the top that was being restored. Excellent 2 hours

This ship has so much history & as is the case with most attractions in London, you get an audio guide which tells you all about the ship. For engineers, the lower decks is where the fun is. The engine room & boiler room are...More

This is an absolute must if you’re in London! It’s so informative and a really unique experience. We went on 12th April and there were war veterans on board, dotted around, answering people’s questions - what a wonderful touch. It was truly amazing to hear...More

I find living history fascinating and the Belfast lived up to expectation. I agree with other posters that it is not the easiest to navigate but as you explore you find new bits to learn about. Perhaps not great for young children but as they...More
