Visit one of the World’s Leading Tourist Attractions
Titanic Belfast is not only Belfast’s most popular attraction but also the recipient of the “World’s Leading Tourist Attraction” at the World Travel Awards 2016. It is located in the Titanic Quarter at the old Harland & Wolff shipyard, where the ship was built.
The exhibition tells the story of the famous RMS Titanic, the largest ship in the world at the time, which sunk during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. The galleries tell numerous stories:
- Boomtown Belfast explores the booming shipbuilding industry in Belfast in the early 20th century.
- The Shipyard details the construction of the Titanic and her sister ship, the RMS Olympic.
- The Launch gallery features original footage of the Titanic’s first – and last – time leaving port.
- The Fit-Out shows the ship’s interior for first, second and third class passengers to be explored in detail.
- The Maiden Voyage gallery allows visitors to walk the decks, marvel at original photographs and feel just as if they were on the Titanic in 1912.
- The Sinking is when the great disaster strikes and your group will get to experience first-hand stories from survivors.
- The Aftermath explores how the world reacted to the catastrophe and how the Titanic’s sister ships fared.
- Myths and Legends shows just how many stories have come to light in the 100 years since the Titanic sunk – some true, some fiction.
- The final gallery, Titanic Beneath, finally allows visitors to explore video footage of the wreckage, which still lies beneath the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Newfoundland.
Also included is the option to visit the SS Nomadic, the last remaining White Star line ship. It was built alongside the Titanic and served as a transport for first and second class passengers from the port to the main liner. The Nomadic had a much longer service life than the Titanic – it served until 1969 and can now be visited on a self-guided tour right next to Titanic Belfast.
If your group is staying in Dublin and would like to visit Titanic Belfast, we highly recommend booking a combined package day trip to Belfast and the Titanic Experience. This is especially enjoyable if your group is interested in modern Irish history, which Belfast and Northern Ireland are a major part of.
