SAS President Kruger and HMS Alliance

Britain's last surviving Second World War
submarine HMS Alliance reopens its hatches after £7m makeover

 

HMS Alliance – the only British surviving Second World War-era submarine – has reopened its hatches following a major £7m restoration project.

The 281ft sub, based at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum, has been completely restored with new interpretation, lighting and soundscapes to form one of three major exhibitions marking 100 years of untold stories at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

Tours on board now begin with a new film narrated by British Hollywood star Ian McShane, highlighting life on HMS Alliance from WWII through the Cold War until the 1970s.
