Round off with afternoon tea at a top hotel
One of just three remaining vessels from the supporting fleet of the infamous D-Day battle of 1944, the HMS Belfast is more than just a floating monument; she's a treasured symbol of pride, heroism and patriotism. Cutting an imposing figure on the banks of the Thames, a visit to this museum gives a fascinating and sometimes shocking insight into the lives of the crew and soldiers who lived, fought and died aboard her decks in WWII. See bunks where soldiers were treated onboard, discover the tragi-comic effect of gunfire on the ship's toilets and more. Once appetites for history are sated, head over to a London hotel - The DoubleTree by Hilton Victoria, Ambassador's Hotel or Courthouse Hotel - and reflect over a sumptuous afternoon tea.
