HMS Belfast

Once home to a crew of up to 950 men, HMS Belfast, part of Imperial War Museums, tells the stories of those who lived and worked on board this warship during the Second World War and beyond.

Imagine sleeping in one of the tightly-packed hammocks during convoy duties in icy Arctic waters, or being stationed deep in the bowels of the ship when she opened fire in support of Allied troops on D-Day.

Explore nine decks of amazing history, from the daily drudgery of peeling spuds in the Galley to the sights and sounds of controlling a fleet of ships in the interactive Operations Room.

Hear veterans’ first-hand experiences in the Life at Sea exhibition, and discover for yourself what it would have been like to be in the midst of a battle in our thrilling Gun Turret Experience.
