HMS Caroline, the last surviving ship of the First World War, has received a multi-million pound investment to undergo the final stages of restoration and redevelopment to turn the vessel into a premiere heritage attraction. Captain John Rees, Chief of Staff at the Royal Navy National Museum and Chair of the HMS Caroline project stated ‘We are breathing new life into what is an internationally significant piece of world history.’
HMS Caroline, which has been based in Belfast for more than 90 years, will become a world-class museum, community centre and more importantly for us, an exciting addition to our extensive list of unique meeting and conference venues. The opening date is due to coincide with the Battle of Jutland’s centenary, which took place on 31 May 1916.
Enterprise, Trade and Investment Minister Jonathan Bell said ‘HMS Caroline is an integral part of the rich tapestry of maritime history at Titanic Quarter, and I have no doubt it will prove to be a hugely popular draw for tourists when it opens as a world class museum and meeting space in May.’
In keeping with our ‘Boutique and Unique’ motto, we’ve already got a host of ideas on how we can use this exciting space for our clients. If your company would like to be one of the first to experience this venue, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
