The Coldest Journey's ice-strengthened expedition ship, the SA Agulhas, is arriving this afternoon at approximately 3pm to moor alongside the HMS Belfast at London Bridge. She is big, red and has Seeing is Believing written along each side.
The Coldest Journey expedition, led by explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes, aims to complete the first ever transantarctic crossing during the polar winter, whilst raising money for Seeing is Believing, a charity tackling blindness.
The ship will be moored at London Bridge until 6 December, when she departs destined for South Africa where she will be met by Sir Ranulph Fiennes.
