No space can rival the views, atmosphere and location of the majestic HMS Belfast. Perfect for summer events, the vessel features a host of decks with views over the Tower of London and the Gherkin, as well as drinks and food packages to suit a range of budgets.
When it comes to themed summer parties, HMS Belfast is offering the ultimate 1940’s package this year – think big band music, victory rolls and Blitz spirit. With a distinctly vintage twist, check out what’s on offer below and find out more about the venue. There’s also the opportunity to treat your guests to a museum tour and bring the history of HMS Belfast to life with one of their expert guides.
Choose the right space for your summer party:
The Jubilee Deck
The Jubilee deck commemorates the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012, boasting elevated views of the river Thames and its surrounding historic landmarks. It’s a remarkable place to enjoy an evening BBQ or reception for slightly smaller gatherings.
Capacity: 20 – 40 people
The Boat Deck
Get the best of both worlds on the HMS Belfast’s Boat Deck. It is located outdoors, with a canopy and alternative indoor spaces to retreat to in poor weather. Fun fact – this unusual spot used to be the holding area for the small boats and where Walrus aircraft were catapulted into the air.
Capacity: 70 – 140
The Quarter Deck
There’s no finer vista for an evening reception than that provided by the Quarter Deck, where guests can gaze out at Tower Bridge, the Tower of London and the Thames dockland scenes. The beautifully appointed wooden decking once played host to the officers of HMS Belfast and now makes an ideal space for larger events.
Capacity: 90 – 200
