HMS Belfast

Launched in 1938, HMS Belfast was the Royal Navy's biggest and most powerful warship during the Second World War, with a crew of over 90 officers and men.  Today she is a unique floating museum offering a fascinating glimpse of naval life.  One can explore its nine decks including the massive boiler and engine rooms, operate the anti-aircraft guns and what life was like for those on board.  She is a cruiser that served with distinction in both the Second World War and Korean War.  She is now the only surviving example of the great fleets of big gun armored warships built for the Royal Navy in the first half of the Twentieth Century.
