HMS Belfast is one of London’s most iconic venues which gives yourself and your guests the opportunity to experience 1950’s life on a restored battle cruiser. Guests can dine in the Officer’s Mess or watch the sunset on the Quarter Deck. Whatever the event, The HMS Belfast will not disappoint, from meetings to parties you will get stunning views and superb food to create a truly unique event.
The Admiral’s Quarters
Comprising the original Dining Room and Lounge area of the Admiral’s own living quarters, the Admiral’s Quarters are the perfect space for both boardroom meetings and elegant dining. Restored to reflect how the space would have looked during the 1950’s, the Admiral’s Quarters provide a luxurious and intimate space for events.
The Ward & Ante Room
This stunning space, comprising two rooms, was, historically, the Officers’ Mess. The Ante room offers the perfect space for pre dinner drinks and general relaxing, while the Ward Room provides a perfect dining room. Both spaces have been carefully restored in meticulous detail, from the bar to the light fixtures, recreated to match the room as it looked in 1959. With a rather glamorous gold and cream finish, the atmosphere in this room is full of warmth. An ideal space for conferences with a break out space or private dining with a separate bar area.
The Morgan Giles Room
This room once served as an Officers’ mess and so includes a bar. Named after the Admiral who served in her and later was responsible for ensuring the ship was saved from the scrap yard, the room has been restored to reflect the original 1950’s décor and its wood panelled walls echo the camaraderie that was such a vital part of life on board this great ship.
The Ship’s Company Dining Hall
This unique area of the ship is where the crew would gather for their meals. Surrounded by all the original features, including the exposed steel walls of the ship and pipe work on the ceiling, there is no mistaking that you’re on a warship! Amidst all these period fittings, you will have the facility of modern AV equipment for both day and evening events. This space is ideal for larger conferences or dinners of up to 144 people.
The Jubilee Deck
The Jubilee Deck commemorates the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012 and boasts elevated views of the river Thames and the surrounding historic landmarks. Together, they truly are a remarkable place to enjoy an evening BBQ or reception in the summer months.
The Boat Deck
Outdoors, but with a canopy and alternative indoor spaces to retreat to in poor weather, the Boat Deck used to be the holding area for the small boats, having previously been the spot from which Walrus aircraft were, literally, catapulted into the air. You can still see the crane that lifted the planes back on board and the marks on the deck where the boats sat.
There can surely be no finer vista for an evening reception than standing on the Quarterdeck,looking out at Tower Bridge, the Tower of London and the Thames dockland scenes. The beautifully appointed wooden decking, that, during her commissioned years, played host to only the Officers of HMS Belfast, makes this period setting one of the finest in London and the ideal space for your summer events.
