The visit shows you the labyrinth inside the ship, the surprising technology and the hierarchy in the old British war machine. One wonders how the ship could have continued to function once a few of the electric cables running everywhere were damaged by enemy fire.

We've been to London many times, have seen HMS Belfast sitting there in the Thames and have said we really must visit it. So finding ourselves with several hours to kill in the pouring rain we finally got round to it. Like some other reviewers...More

Fascinating day out, on this excellently preserved warship, moored close to Tower Bridge. The experience is excellently presented, giving a real feel for how it would have been to have served on this important warship, enhanced by the placement of waxwork figures, depicting the wartime...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
