Hms Belfast, London Reviews - Write a Review
A brilliant day out for the whole family, and a fascinating look at British naval history! This is one of Britain's most iconic ships, and it has aged fairly well. The boat is huge, with almost all of the rooms being open to the public. A highlight would be the shell room beneath the main guns, where circles of shells sit as they would have been during a conflict. A great place to visit and well worth the menial entrance fee. There are toilets and a small cafe on board.
Well done to the staff and charity who are keeping this fantastic piece of our history in tiptop condition. I last went on board the Belfast in 1975, the crew have done wonders to bring this ship back up to its present standard. Great tour around the ship. Engine room and boiler rooms very interesting with lots of sounds and videos to reproduce what it was like on board in all its great timeline the ship has been through. Highly recommend a visit, you need at least a half a day to get around it. The café had closed for the rest of the day when I went on board so I cannot comment on this.
Really enjoyed looking around a war ship! Lots to see and an interesting audio tour. We spent about 3 hours there. If your travelling by train it's definitely worth picking up the 2 for 1 attraction leaflets from the station which meant my wife and I got in for £8 each. Well worth it for that price.
A must see attraction in London, gives a real insight into what life was like on board for the sailors. You can also grab great picture's of London from on board the ship. I would recommend using the voice tour as it offers even more information to learn, as well as real accounts from past sailors who served on the ship.
Me uncle serve no her so I have a bond with this ship. For the public it good value for money you can go all over the ship even in the engine room. Just make sure you use the stairs correctly and your visit will be safe and enjoyable.
