HMS Belfast

Explore HMS Belfast’s nine decks to discover the stories of life on board this warship during the Second World War and beyond. Imagine sleeping in one of the tightly packed hammocks during duties in Arctic waters, or being stationed deep in the bowels of the ship when she opened fire in support of Allied troops on D-Day. Venture into the interactive Operations Room, and immerse yourself in the midst of a battle in the Gun Turret Experience.

The HMS Belfast offers private tours and hosts several events throughout the year, including a ‘cracking codes’ event for families where you can intercept messages and make up your own secret codes. It’s a great way to learn some of the skills of the intelligence officers of the past.
