HMS Belfast is a British warship launched in 1938 and spent 24 years in active service. At the time of her construction she was the largest warship ever built at the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
She was commissioned into the Royal Navy in 1939 and became HMS – His Majesty’s Ship – Belfast. She is the most important surviving Second World War Royal Navy warship: She fired some of the first shots at the D-Day landings, served in the Arctic Convoys, and in the Korean War.
HMS Belfast was at war within weeks of being commissioned into the Royal Navy, but with the end of the Korean War in 1953, her future was in doubt. In 1955 the decision was taken to modernise HMS Belfast. She was rebuilt between 1956 and 1959 and gained new anti-aircraft weapons, new masts, and a new fully enclosed bridge.Belfast’s two final foreign commissions involved a whistle-stop tour of the world’s great ports – ending with a remarkable circumnavigation of the globe, taking in Guam, Hawaii, San Francisco, Seattle, British Columbia, the Panama Canal and Trinidad. Belfast arrived in Singapore at the end of December 1959, and spent most of 1960 at sea on exercise, calling at ports in Hong Kong, Borneo, India, Ceylon (now Sri Lanka), Australia, the Philippines and Japan.
HMS Belfast recommissioned at Devonport in May 1959 and in 1962 she reached Portsmouth. In 1971 she was brought to London.
Visit the real HMS Belfast docked on the River Thames in London. She’s now a national museum and there are nine decks to explore!
