HMS Portland Arrives to London for International Shipping Week

A Royal Navy frigate HMS Portland has sailed up the River Thames into the UK capital to take part in London International Shipping Week.

The vessel will be moored alongside HMS Belfast until the end of the week.

Although not open to the public, the Type 23 frigate will be clearly visible in the heart of the city while she plays host to a number of networking opportunities for the maritime sector.

As part of her duties, on Wednesday, she will be hosting the official LISW International reception on board.

London International Shipping Week is the biggest event in the calendar for the global shipping industry which meets across a variety of locations to discuss issues crucial to its various businesses.

HMS Portland has arrived in London a day after leaving Rotterdam where she was supporting World Port Days – a three day event which saw nearly 20,000 visitors on board the ship.
