HMS Belfast

HMS Belfast served throughout the Second World War, playing a leading part in the destruction of the battle cruiser Scharnhorst, and also the Normandy Landings. In service with the Royal Navy until 1965, she was saved for the nation in 1971 as a unique reminder of Britain’s naval heritage.

HMS Belfast is the largest surviving example of Britain’s twentieth century naval power and is now a museum moored on the Thames between Tower and London Bridge.  She was the first ship to be saved for the nation since Nelson’s HMS Victory due to her historical importance.
Best known for her role in supporting the advancing Allied troops as they made their way onto Gold and Juno beaches on the morning of D-Day, 6 June 1944, HMS Belfast is now a naval time capsule, providing nine decks of living history to explore.

The HMS Belfast experience provides living testament to her illustrious service, her battle stories and the conditions in which up to 950 crew members lived and fought in until her retirement from the Royal Navy in 1965.

Please note: children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Please allow 1½ – 2 hours for your visit.  HMS Belfast is not a suitable site for “Heelys” and it is strongly recommend that parents make sure their children have appropriate footwear when planning their day out.
