Bloggiversary Giveaway Day 2 - HMS Belfast Gun Turret Experience

This Giveaway is now closed. Please keep checking back for more great giveaways.

 We have a family ticket on offer for you to go and explore the HMS Belfast. It's a floating museum on the Thames in London and is part of the Imperial War Museum. I'm very excited about this giveaway mainly because we are going to experience it on our next trip to London and it's awesome that I can giveaway a ticket as well.  

They have recently added the new gun turret experience to enable children and grown ups alike to get a feeling of what it would have been like to fight at sea. It uses lights, imagery, sound, smoke effects and movement to recreate the cramped turret with its crews at action!!! I give me about 2 minutes before I get scared ;-) This video gives you a brilliant whistle stop tour:

The ship is based just a short walk from London Bridge and Tower bridge and you can explore all 9 decks!!!

 The ship saw action in the Second World War and the Korean war and is bought to life through temporary exhibitions, displays and historic spaces all put together with the help of Royal Navy Veterans and eye witness accounts from the Imperial War Museum.
