No other vessel surviving in Britain today has witnessed historic events of the same magnitude as HMS Belfast. Her every rivet tells a story: the guns chosen to fire the first shots on D?Day as the Allies battled towards victory in the Second World War; the cavernous engine rooms that powered the ship through the icy wastes of the Arctic and the shark?infested waters of the Tropics; the Flag Deck, nine levels up, where lookouts once scanned the horizon for enemy vessels and where, today, you can enjoy unrivalled views of central London. This is history you can touch and feel. This is HMS Belfast.
