The HMS Belfast is a very interesting ship with a lot of history. It has static displays that make it an interesting place. There were also people doing the ship that were answering questions and telling stories about the ship and what it went through. It was interesting to contrast the British ship to the American ships that I have... More

Great experience. To walk around a historic warship is a pretty unique feeling and they really made the effort to give you an idea about how life would be in the Belfast when active. From the dentist, to the operating room to the hammocks and the huge guns there is simply too much for me to list out. Lots of... More

We visited here with Tesco Clubcard Vouchers which were easy to exchange for standard tickets. Afternoon visit on a Sunday at end of November and the ship was quiet with only a handful of others mooching around. The guided audio tours are informative and interesting and held the kids (age 12 and 9) attention for a couple of hours by... More

We stumbled upon the HMS Belfast - not actually stumbled as it is clearly visible docked in the Thames - but we saw it when touring the Tower Bridge. When we finished that tour we were on the same side of the river as the Belfast and decided why not use our London Pass to check it out. The Belfast... More

Such a lot of history! I have been on board this ship a couple of times and it is just fascinating! A real gem of our history to be soaked up by everyone. A must see whilst in London and entertaining for all ages.

Very well worth a visit and was brought to life with the exhibits. I think the guides need to have more knowledge I was by the naafi and noticed that there were no "blue liners" (RN's own brand of cigarettes) the guide had no idea what I was talking about. I think the guides whilst very friendly need to be... More

My son and I visited the HMS Belfast, he had wanted to see the ship for years but has not been able to. It was a gorgeous day so the scene was superb to see. We got to see everything on the ship on all of the different decks. From the living quarters to the eating and sick areas and... More

Always wanted to visit whilst in London and finally got around to visiting this floating museum. Great way to see how the men lived and worked on this cruiser and the debt we owe to them and spent about 2 1/2 hrs having a really leisurely and informative tour. A five star visit. This was available as a "two for... More
