HMS Belfast

The heart of Britain's naval history

HMS Belfast

The island of Britain has always been known for their powerful navy. Visitors wishing to learn more about Britain’s impressive naval history can now tour the HMS Belfast – a ship/museum that is moored between London Bridge and Tower Bridge. HMS Belfast was once a stellar naval cruiser and participated in the Allied landings in Normandy, arctic convoys and the Korean War. In its 80 years the ship has seen the shores of Pearl Harbor, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Arkhangelsk, Murmansk and Hong Kong amongst other famous global ports.


Today, the ship has been turned into a unique museum. Visiting it, you will see how eating, drinking, sleeping, shooting, and cooking was for British sailors who fought in the Second World War. You’ll learn about steering, sailing and operating this enormous vessel. You’ll also be able to learn about the legendary chasing and sinking of the German battleship the Scharnhorst in 1943. All aboard!


HMS Belfast is one of the best London attractions for small and big kids alike. It has many interactive displays: you can take part in a simulation of a battle, have a go at running the ship and play around in the Operations Room, the heart of HMS Belfast. If you get exhausted head to the rooftop bar to get a drink and enjoy spectacular views of London.
