Today, HMS Belfast is an important example of our nation’s cultural heritage. She is moored in the heart, in the Pool, of London, positioned close by those other hallmarks of British history, the Tower of London and Tower Bridge – a fact that reflects her significance. Visited by more than 250,000 people every year, she represents for the Imperial War Museum the role of the Royal Navy in our history. Here, we explore the fascinating story of both her commissioned life and her preservation.
