A bit of Belfast in London
What shall we give in return for so much?
Location: Morgan's Lane, Tooley Street, SE1 2JH
Description: One of the most powerful large light cruisers ever built, HMS Belfast is now the only surviving vessel of her type to have seen active service during the Second World War.
Serving Britain for 32 years, she played an important role in both the Second World War and the Korean War as well as performing peacekeeping duties throughout the 1950s and 1960s. Saved from destruction in 1971, HMS Belfast is now part of the Imperial War Museum and is the first ship to be preserved for the nation since Nelson's Victory.
Through its team of staff and volunteers - many of whom are veteran crew - the Imperial War Museum is dedicated to making sure that HMS Belfast still has a role to play in reminding visitors of her unique place in Britain's maritime heritage.
