    Today, the Princess Elizabeth can be seen from the Quai de l'Estacade, near the Pole Marine. It thus perpetuates the "Spirit of Dunkirk" initiated by Churchill in 1940.


    In May 2016, Christopher Nolan's teams arrived in the city to shoot the film Dunkirk. Thousands of extras were requisitioned for the film. A special guest will also make an appearance in the film: the Princess Elizabeth.

    The Princess Elizabeth is a gourmet restaurant. It has been designed in keeping with the location and the spirit of the ship. On the menu are local specialities and refined dishes in a very British atmosphere.

    No tour on board. The building is visible from the quay of the pier in Dunkerque-centre.
