Description

Step aboard HMS Caroline, a unique survivor of The Battle of Jutland in World War One.

Based in Belfast’s famous Titanic Quarter, HMS Caroline is a First World War-era ship now restored as a must-see floating museum with an amazing story to tell.

Be immersed in life aboard this unique vessel – lone survivor of the First World War’s greatest naval engagement… the Battle of Jutland!

Enjoy the new quayside visitor centre and exhibition space dedicated to telling the personal stories of those who served on the ‘Carry’. Then step aboard to see a powerful film on the drama of Jutland and experience impressively restored cabins and deck areas as well as an array of state-of-the-art interactive exhibits.

Soak up the atmosphere as you find out about communication at sea in the Signal School, and continue to the Torpedo School before finishing your visit at our authentic galley café.

Finally, relax at the new picnic area or let your little mariners loose on our naval-themed kiddies’ play park.

Come aboard HMS Caroline, a day out the whole family can enjoy!
