Visited HMS Belfast as part of a school trip. We had spent the day looking round London- Parliament, St James's park, Horsegaurds parade, Buckingham Palace etc. We arrived about 8.30 pm, and were welcomed and had our safety talk. We settled the boys and girls into their separate dormitories. The metal bunks are not hugely comfortable. Good hint; a YHA sheet sleeping bag is great for the ship, it is quite warm on board. There was some difficulty settling down because of the ship noises, party boats passing and the odd snorer! Leaders have a separate cabin, which helps a bit. Breakfast was juice, cereal and toast and fruit. Their packed lunches were good too. We had an hours session on the history of the ship, and artefacts to guess. We had then to move on to the Science museum, so didn't have time for a detailed look round. The bits we saw looked good though. The ship's mannequins were a bit scary for some of the children. There are lots of steep ladders to negotiate.
