Queen Elizabeth’s Whistle

The sound of the largest liner of her day

For her entire career, RMS Queen Elizabeth was the world’s largest passenger ship. It was therefore fitting that she had one of the most powerful and loud whistles on the transatlantic run.

This video allows you to hear the ship’s unique steam powered whistle at work. Watch through to 1:09 to hear the ship’s whistle. It is a deep whistle, similar to that many will remember from QE2.
