80th anniversary of HMS Belfast, London

March 2018 marks 80 years since the launch of HMS Belfast. A programme of on-board activities will celebrate the historic warship’s anniversary weekend (17 – 18 March), and visitors can discover stories from the ship’s fascinating 80 year history, from its 1938 launch to its arrival in London in 1971, via Arctic convoys, D-Day, the Cold War, the Korean War and more. Visitors can get involved in preparations for the milestone too; during February half term, they can take part in hands-on conservation as part of the Ship Shape programme of activities.
