Belfast’s incredible fully restored First World War ship berthed in the heart of Belfast’s Titanic Quarter is set to welcome maritime explorers during the three big May Bank holiday weekends.

Family focused fun is on the menu for the upcoming early May and late May bank holidays, while an unforgettable tour of Belfast’s fully restored First World War ship is the perfect location to mark the Coronation bank holiday weekend.

One of Northern Ireland’s most stunning and authentic visitor attractions

HMS Caroline mixes history and authenticity with engagement and fun. Bank holiday weekend visitors will crack codes, launch torpedoes and signal ships just as the ship’s crews would have done during the First World War, as well as listen to their stories and discover the fascinating mascots that lived alongside them.

Step onboard and you step back in time to another world! With HMS Caroline’s living quarters, signal school, engine room, sick bay and galley having all been painstakingly restored to their original 1914 state, visiting explorers get to uncover the ship’s incredible story and experience what life was like at sea more than 100 years ago.

Take the kids on an HMS Caroline Pest Patrol Trail

Family-focused fun and surprises galore are firmly on the ship’s radar for the early May and late May bank holiday weekends. The HMS Caroline Pest Patrol Trail is a chance for children to help our Curator look after the museum’s collection by discovering what types of pests hide on board a historic ship. There will also be maritime themed crafts, dress ups, puzzles and games-galore to explore!
