This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Meet veterans and eyewitnesses at HMS Belfast this half term and hear about what daily life was like during wartime.

IWM's extraordinary sites will be brought to life in new ways, as families ask questions of and discover the personal stories of those who experienced conflict.

2018 marks 80 years since the launch of HMS Belfast in 1938. Visit the ship in her anniversary year to discover stories from the Arctic convoys, D-Day, the Cold War, the Korean War and beyond.

Visitors can journey through the ship's nine decks and uncover her fascinating history, climbing ladders and ducking through hatches.
