THE FIVE STAR VISITOR ATTRACTION in Belfast HMS Caroline, located in the heart of Belfast’s Titanic Quarter, has reopened to the public from 1 July. HMS Caroline was officially converted to a Museum Ship in 2016 - 100 years since the momentous Jutland battle - and attracted around 16,000 paying visitors in the first few months. Following further extensive repairs and the installation of an advanced mooring system this year, the ship is open to the public once again. HMS Caroline's reopening marks the first stage of a major redevelopment project in the area with the planned creation of a 500m walkway connecting Titanic Belfast slipways, HMS Caroline and the Thompson Dock. Restoration work is also underway at the nearby Pump House as well as Alexandra Dock where Caroline is moored. » nmrn.org.uk
