Quite expensive for an exercise in cardiovascular activities but a must for any one interested in military history. Some decent detail, you need to be fit to get around. Disappointed that they allow cruise liners to moor alongside. What this is missing is actual navy guides who could give life to the old girl. The phone guide isn't good enough... More

We were indecisive as to wether to go here as it was over £70 for the four of us. We decided to go for it and I'm glad we did. There is plenty to see, read and hear, and we were on board for about three hours. There are a lot of steep ladders and fitting through tight spaces so... More

We visited this attraction on a recent visit to London. At £42 for a family ticket we were inclined to pass it by but as our daughter has recently been learning about World War II we decided to go in. I'm so glad we did. There was a lot to see and it gave you a real sense of what... More

This wasn't really on my 'must see' list, but my husband loves these kind of things and it was included in our London Pass. I did however enjoy my visit! My husband loved seeing all the old weapons on board, and learning about the history from the audio guide. But for me it was fun to see what life was... More

If you share my fascination with the Second World War and History in general; visiting the HMS Belfast is a must! The HMS Belfast is a real eye-opener and casts a light on what life was like serving on board a warship! We found moving around this vessel hard if you’re not fit and agile with narrow cramped ladders leading... More

I was a bit skeptical as to how much I would enjoy it, but was not once I went in. Was a great way to spend a couple of hours. Fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable.

This is a great attraction in a great place in London. When walking around the ship you get an idea of what it would be like to live and work on board such a beautiful ship. The entrance fee might be a bit on the high side but its worth it.

This is a great attraction with some good audio visual sections that really get across how the ship works and what live was like me on board. We spent 3 hours in total and could have stayed longer. There are places to sit down on your way round and it wasn't overcrowded. The route around the ship is carefully signposted... More
