HMS Defender leaves, HMS Ocean to arrive next week

After a six day visit to the capital, the Daring class destroyer HMS Defender sailed out of Greenwich yesterday. The Type 45 warship had been in London for a port visit which helped mark the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Gallipoli and she also welcomed aboard visitors last weekend who all seemed to give it the thumbs up, judging by the reaction on social media.

But it won’t be long to wait for the next naval visitor because the Royal Navy’s biggest warship HMS Ocean will be arriving next week and you can go on board her too, by booking a free ticket here – but don’t delay as they soon get snapped up.

It’s a return to Greenwich for HMS Ocean after becoming a familiar site on the river during 2012 when she was in London during the Olympics.
