About

Royal Navy aircraft carrier HMS Prince of Wales will visit Liverpool in a demonstration of the Naval Service’s close ties with the city.

The second of the Royal Navy’s giant new aircraft carriers will arrive in the city on 28 February for a week-long visit packed with celebrations. Visitors will also be able to step on board over the weekend of 29 February – the first time one of the new aircraft carriers has officially been open to visitors.

HMS Prince of Wales is affiliated with the cities of Liverpool and Bristol. Affiliations in the Royal Navy mean a close bond between a ship and the communities she is tied with.

The ship’s flight deck is 70 metres wide and 280 metres long – enough space for three football pitches. Her ship’s company make their way through 170 metres of sausages a day, which is roughly twice the height of the Liver Building.

She has a ship’s company of 700 sailors, which will increase to around 1,600 with aircraft on board.

Tickets for HMS Prince of Wales on sale now.
