HMS Belfast, moored at Morgan’s Lane off Tooley Street, is a World War Two cruiser with nine decks. As you explore this floating museum, pop into the Captain’s Bridge and then head down to the massive Boiler and Engine Rooms, well below the ship’s waterline. Launched on St Patrick’s Day (17th March) 1938, the 187-metre long ship is a 6-inch cruiser (the inches denote the size of its guns), designed for the protection of trade, for offensive action, and to support military operations by aiding landings from the sea. One of her last jobs was to help evacuate emaciated survivors of Japanese prisoner of war and civilian internment camps from China. Up until the autumn of 1947 she was fully occupied with peace-keeping duties in the Far East. Following a stint in Korea she was retired in 1952 and long after was given to the public in 1971. A collapsed gangway in 2011 caused the ship to close for members of the public but it was successfully re-opened in May 2012.
