Very historical, lots of info. We visited HMS Belfast after already walking around visiting various other London sites that day, so as we arrived with fairly tired legs, we were doomed from the start. The boat is even bigger than you expect when you are on board. I'd like to try again one day when we aren't already worn out.... More

I took my kids here on a day out during half term. (9 and 11 years old) I thought £15 for me and the two kids was excellent value. The HMS Belfast is quite a handsome ship and plenty of interesting things to see. There are a lot of steep stairs to go up and down as part of the... More

My husband really wanted to see HMS Belfast. He was in the military and enjoys anything dealing with the military. It was interesting, but I didn't really like the cramped space and trying to go up and down small ladders with several other tourist there doing the same thing. They had each room set up with mannequins that showed what... More

Lots of history embedded throughout the ship and walking round the ship seeing all the different stations and decks as they were during the her use is really interesting. However when walking round the ship you encounter lots of weird, unpleasant smells and personally it ruined the whole experience for me as you come out feeling sick and gasping for... More

This an amazing attraction to visit and is well worth the entrance fee. We spent over three hours looking round and both my eight year old son and my five year old enjoyed the whole experience. Well worth a visit and wouldn't hesitate to go back. Staff very friendly and informative.

The visit was well worth it as it had changed so much since I last visited when it was first moored, the whole visit was pleasant and enjoyed the information given when asked.

This is a hidden gem on the Thames. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. A great day out, and I would recommend it to everyone.

Fantastic exhibit where visitors can climb ladders into the various floors of the HMS Belfast. History is recreated with smells, sounds, and life size dioramas. My history minded son loved this of all the sites we saw.

Great visit, my 8yr old was surprisingly attentive with the audio sessions, great to go at your own pace and listen. There was also a great guy doing a story around the boat who was excellent. Great bargain as we did it on tesco vouchers. Only down side was that the on board cafe ran out of a choice of... More

Well worth it! Give yourself at least two hours to get around. Very interesting. We had a two for one voucher so 2 adults and a child cost £15.50. My legs are still aching from going up and down all the steps! Highly recommended.
