Climb Aboard

Explore HMS Belfast and see what life was like aboard this floating city as you weave your way through the bowels of the ship and climb up and down ladders across all 9 decks.

Take the helm in the Captain's chair and help recover a downed plane in an interactive game based on a real-life exercise. Keep a lookout up on the flag deck where you can get amazing 360-degree views of London, and delve deeper into the boiler and engine rooms 15ft below sea level.
