Big Ship in the Big Apple

Final international visit for Hampshire destroyer

HMS Edinburgh's visit to New York is an historic milestone for the ship and for the Royal Navy, as it marks her final international visit before her return to base in Portsmouth.

She will be decommissioned to make way for the Navy's new generation Type 45 destroyer.

She manoeuvred through New York harbour to her temporary home at Brooklyn Pier 7, where she will stay for the next few days.
