Avoid disappointment by pre-booking admission tickets to ensure full interaction with the exhibit; or, if you’d rather absorb views of the striking ship from the water, opt for a sightseeing cruise that sails past the vessel. Maritime enthusiasts can make the most of their time with a walking tour of the entire Titanic Quarter, while travelers looking to explore the wider county landmarks can combine a visit to the HMS Caroline with a tour to top rural attractions, such as the Giant’s Causeway.
Things to Know Before You Go
The HMS Caroline is suitable and informative for the whole family.
The decommissioned warship has been made as accessible as possible for wheelchair users. Areas that are inaccessible can be explored via virtual access.
High heels with a diameter of less than 2.5cm cannot be worn on the ship.
How to Get There
Located in the Alexandra Dock, the HMS Caroline is a short walk from the Titanic Quarter Station and is served directly by the 26, 26B, and 26C buses. There is free parking beside the ship.
When to Get There
The attraction is open daily, though weekends and school holidays tend to be more crowded.
Second Longest Serving Ship
At the time of her decommissioning in 2011, the HMS Caroline was the second-longest serving Royal Navy ship. Just ahead of her was the HMS Victory, the famous flagship of Lord Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. The HMS Victory can still be visited today at her retirement home in Portsmouth.
