Visited here about twenty years ago.
From then to now they have opened up more things to see and do.
They have a cafe and toilets which are both clean and tidy.

The main difference to my previous visit was that the main café was open and there was a 30 minute video of the ship running continuously, detailing the history of the ship. Otherwise it was good to wander up and down the decks (very steep stairs).
Great place to take pictures of London from.

HMS belfast was an interesting one for me which i really didn’t think it would be! My boyfriend is a huge boat fan so we was really going there for him. A free audio tour is available which you enter numbers at each sign- this was great and easy to use. It’s rather hot and stuffy inside the boat so i would advice carrying water with you. There is a lot of narrow and steep ladders which i personally am
not great with so if you do really struggle with that i probably wouldn’t recommend. The very top floor was closed due to work but there was more then enough to see! Throughout the HMS belfast there was many staff there to help and give extra information. Give yourself a good 2-3 hours to see everything

Going through all the decks gave you a feeling of how the crew had to cope in adverse conditions. We took 3 hours to cover all the decks and could have spent more time.
The audio guide was a fantastic help as to what went on during her sea going days. Very enjoyable visit. Would recommend to all visiting London

This really is a historic ship from the second world war. It is an amazing experience to walk around its 8 or 9 decks and imagine what it must have been like for those brave sailors in wartime conditions. We spent just over three hours visiting the various decks. To do it justice probably requires at ĺeast two visits. It is a 'must see' if you have time on your visit to London. Adult prices are about £17 and concessions are about £13. The ship is berthed about 5 minutes walk to the east of London Bridge station and is easy to find. It made an interesting, enjoyable and instructive day. We will visit again soon.
