First time visit onto HMS M.33 and really impressed with its history and especially its involvement in the Gallipoli campaign. Built in Belfast in quick time the movie that plays in the engine room charts the history around Gallipoli and the role that the ship played. It has been restored to how it would have looked in the First World War and worth some time to look around. On the day I visited HMS Prince of Wales was on the jetty behind. The old and new of the navy together. That’s what makes the dockyard special.

This is a great 30-45 minute attraction that gives an interesting insight into the battle of Gallipoli. The show bear the start really paints the picture and tells of the hardship of the soldiers. The ship itself had a small role in the battle but walking around gives a good idea of what life would have been like for the sailors. If you buy a ticket to all dockyard attractions, this is not to be missed.

We enjoyed the visit to M.33, not the biggest vessel but one with an interesting history. As the youngest of the vessels in the historic dockyard this feels closer to a more modern naval vessel, which makes it easier to relate to the crew and stories surrounding the ship. Nice example of dazzle paint on the hull, which is fairly unusual and within the vessel there is an explanation to how dazzle paint is believed to work.

Well worth a look around - an interesting couple of hours looking at all the different areas of the ship & watching the footage into the history of the ship. Amazing walking back in time and seeing how the crew worked and lived.

Missed by far to many visitors to the historic dockyards. If you have a ticket to see everything its definitely worth going down to see this veteran of ww1, that saw itself serve on in varied unglamorous roles until the 1980s. A monitor used at the ill fated Gallipoli campaign. Gives an insight to this often forgot campaign of the conflict.
