Step on board HMS Caroline, Belfast’s newest visitor attraction and a unique survivor of WWl's Battle of Jutland. The ship's historic spaces have been restored to look as they did in 1916, the year HMS Caroline was part of one of the largest naval battles in history.
As you enter the large Drill Hall, prepare to be blown away by a dynamic film showing the drama and devastation battle can bring. View the impressively restored Captain’s and Senior Officers’ cabins where everyday sounds transport you to a moment as if the crew left the ship yesterday.
Soak up the atmosphere as you learn about communication at sea in the Signal School during the 20th and 21st centuries. Try your hand at using a First World War signal lamp and see if you can crack a code using techniques like semaphore and flags.
Visit the Torpedo School to explore naval weaponry and dazzle paint. Learn all about war at sea, create your own dazzle design and see if you can evade an enemy attack.
The Virtual Access Suite provides access to remote and hidden areas of HMS Caroline. Interactive exhibits show how the ship works and allow you to take control in the Virtual Bridge. You will also learn about the ship’s impact in Belfast – her home for 90 years.
Walk along HMS Caroline’s decks and see the replica 6-inch and 4-inch guns. Then visit the on-board shop and cafe to complete your visit on this five star rated visitor attraction.
