  • Visitor Information

Sunday 17th March 2013, St Patrick's Day, marks 75 years since HMS Belfast was first launched in 1938. Now the floating military museum located on the River Thames, between Tower Bridge and London Bridge, is a reminder of the role of the Royal Navy ships during the Second World War. During the weekend of 16th and 17th March, there will be a series of special events and activities (free with admission) to mark this monumental occasion. Visitors will be invited to witness simulated firing from the 4-inch guns, as well as enjoy live Irish music and meet veterans who served on board. Children will also be able to create plaster cast medallions of the ship's crest and learn how to use Morse Code during live radio demos in the Bridge Wireless Office. For full details and time, please visit the official website.

 

About HMS Belfast

HMS Belfast, moored at Morgan's Lane off Tooley Street, is a World War Two cruiser with nine decks. As you explore this floating museum, pop into the Captain's Bridge and then head down to the massive Boiler and Engine Rooms, well below the ship's waterline. More about HMS Belfast
