This 11,500-ton battlecruiser was built in 1938; she played a leading role in the destruction of the German battle cruiser Scharnhorst during the Battle of North Cape, the Normandy invasion and supported UN forces in Koreas before being decommissioned in 1965. Since 1971, the cruiser has been used as a floating museum.
Displays on the cruiser recreate life aboard during the Second World War and examine the history of the Royal Navy. Kids of all ages love exploring the seven decks, boiler and engine rooms and massive gun turrets.
