Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. WW II cruiser in great condition. Free audio guide and plenty of staff on hand - different rooms like the sick bay, mess, dentist - all very well done. At first felt it would have been good to have more directions around the shop but to be honest, I actually liked the informality - you could... More

Maybe a bit expensive for what it is. Good free audio guide which was easy to use but the numbers that correlate the guide weren't obvious to spot. Confusing layout - but that cant be helped! The mess deck was my favourite part as they has make it look like it did back in the early part of the 21st... More

Went here to check out some WW2 history and found it quite easy to spend one to two hours touring the ship. Lots of information to take in and found it interesting to see the history of all the battles that this ship has seen. There are steep stairs/ladders that give access to the different levels so some people might... More

Wasn't expecting too much. However, was pleased that there was so much to see and explore. Visitors are also provided with audio guides which allow visitors to get the most out of the trip at a pace that suits them. Well worth a visit.

Close to the London Bridge is the HMS Belfast. It is a WWI ear battleship that saw quite a few battles during the war. You basically walk through the whole ship passing from the main bridge down to the engine room. it is a short visit worth trying. It is more fun for young kids than adults

Visited the ship with two teens. Nice and interesting but wouldn't visit with my wife and doughter. Too expensive.

Amazing vessel, big guns and all the bits, I was surprised to find hammocks in there as I thought they slept in bunks, lovely ship

I have travelled up and down the river Thames many times and seen this Navy ship with it's large 6 inch guns configuration pointing to the sky as if in a state of constant alert. A few weeks ago I finally got an opportunity to actually step on board as we covered a company party. It's a fantastic venue for... More

This was a great day activity. Well worth a visit, it took us 2 hours to complete, I'm not sure it's suitable if you have young kids as a lot of them were struggling with the ladders up and down the different levels. The ship is kept in great condition and the staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. At great... More
