Fodor's Review

At 613.5 feet, this is one of the last remaining big-gun armored warships from World War II, in which it played an important role in prtoecting the Arctic convoys and supporting the D-Day landings in Normandy; the ship later saw action during the Korean War. The Belfast has been moored in the Thames as a maritime branch of the IWM London since 1971. A tour of all nine decks—which include the Admiral's quarters, mess decks, bakery, punishment cells, operations

room, engine room, and more—gives a vivid picture of life on board the ship, while the riveting interactive gun turret experience puts you in the middle of a World War II naval battle.
