As part of a series of commemorative events to mark the 25th anniversary of the Falklands Conflict, the T42 Destroyer HMS Exeter - the last remaining warship still on active service that saw action in the conflict - is visiting London.

Her visit coincides with the 25th Anniversary of the San Carlos Landings. On 2t May 1982, Royal Marines from 3 Commando Brigade conducted an amphibious assault that secured the beach head at San Carlos from which British Forces were able to re-take the Falkland Islands. Subsequently HMS Ardent was sunk and five other ships were damaged. During the conflict 256 British personnel lost their lives.

The ship will be moored alongside HMS Belfast and will be open to members of the public on production of a valid HMS Belfast ticket or production of a Royal Navy ID card.

Tower Bridge will lift to allow the warship to pass through at 5.25pm on Saturday 19 May and again at 6.40pm on Tuesday 22 May.

  • 10am-5pm
