Commissioned in 1941, the Battleship North Carolina earned 15 battle stars during World War II. The massive battleship came to Wilmington in 1961 and is located on Eagles Island, across the Cape Fear River from historic downtown Wilmington. Retired from service, the 45,000-ton warship serves as a memorial to the 10,000 North Carolinians in all branches of the armed services who gave their lives during World War II, as well as a museum with a collection of photos, documents, oral histories, and memorabilia. The 728-foot vessel carries nickelsteel hull armor and has nine 16-inch turreted guns. Tours are self-guided and take at least two hours. In the summer months, go in the morning before it gets too hot aboard the ship.

Believed to have been built by St Richard of Chichester, it has a particularly fine exterior and the interior is certainly worth exploring. The north nave wall is eleventh century, and there is a thirteenth-century chancel, south chapel and coffin lid. The church has one other curiosity, namely the tomb of a so-called boy bishop.
