HMS Belfast, London
This WWII cruiser is now looking the best she has for a long time. Due to corrosion, both masts had been shrouded in scaffolding and plastic but thanks to a generous donation they have both been restored and can now be seen in all their glory. This vessel is a seriously good visit for enthusiasts of both steam and killing machinery. Even better, the photograph was taken from a 1927 twin screw steam tug - Portwey.
