Belleisle was subsequently used as a hospital ship at Chatham. In June 1866, she was lent by the Admiralty to the Seamen's Hospital Society for use as a hospitaly ship in London for seamen suffering from cholera. Whilst being towed up the River Thames by the tug Medusa, she ran aground, but was refloated on the next tide. Belleisle was broken up in 1872.
