My youngest who is 7 years old was so interested in how the sailors lived on this wonderful ship and listened carefully to the recorded tour. I would visit this ship again when next we visit London. this attraction makes you proud to be British and thankful... More

This is a must for travellers to London. Visited on 30 August 2014 and paid £15 for a single ticket. It was a very memorable experience and was guided round the ship by telephone commentary. You get a real feel for what the ship would have been really like.

Well worth a visit. Took the children (8 and 4) who found it really interesting. The engine/boiler room was especilly good and thought my husband was never going to come out! Quite expensive at £15 each but children go free. Info on the guns and the videos shown were really good and very informative. Quite a lot of walking involved... More

A World War II ship as museum – for those interested, there are few more pleasurable parallels. Conveniently located just off the Tower Bridge on the Thames in London, this is today part of the Imperial War Museum. A popular destination for children, it seemed. Climbing up and down ladders, seeing sleeping quarters, the deck, the torpedos, all have a... More

HMS Belfast has been here for years and I have largely ignored it, but finally took a look, well since then we have been back on a number of occasions and have never not enjoyed ourselves. You do need to allow plenty of time, we normally take about 4 hours as... More

Top attraction, very interesting and enjoyable couple of hours. Audio tour (free) is a must to get the most out of this attraction.
