HMS Belfast is the most significant surviving Second World War Royal Navy warship, with a history that extends to the Cold War, Korea, and beyond. Opened to the public in 1971, she became part of the Imperial War Museum in 1978.

On board, you can journey though the ship’s nine decks and see what life was like for the 950-strong crew, listening to the real-life stories of those who served in her.

Visitors can take command in the Operations Room and help recover a drowned plane; get right to the heart of the action in the Gun Turret Experience; see what it was like to sleep on the ship, where tightly packed hammocks hang over break-out areas and hallways in the Arctic Messdeck; and take in 360 degree views of London landmarks including the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, the Gherkin, and the Shard from the river.

The winner must use their tickets within six months of the date they are received.
