Titanic History in Belfast

4.5 360 Reviews | Add your review

As the world’s most notorious ‘unsinkable’ ship, the tragic voyage of the RMS Titanic captivated public attention long before it was immortalized in James Cameron’s 1997 epic film ‘Titanic’ and 2012 marked the 100th anniversary of its ill-fated maiden voyage. While the ship set sail from Southampton, she was built by Harland and Wolff in the Northern Ireland capital of Belfast, a pioneering feat of engineering that made her the most luxurious ship ever made. 

Sadly, of course, the Titanic’s legend was to be a different one and today, visitors to Belfast can uncover the real history of the Titanic, from her construction and trial runs, to her shocking and tragic demise. A Titanic walking tour of Belfast is the best way to take in the city’s myriad of Titanic-related attractions, centered around the impressive waterfront renamed the ‘Titanic Quarter’. The redeveloped quarter is home to sights like the Harland and Wolff offices where the ship was designed, the Titanic Dock and Pump House where the ship was built and the slipways where she first set sail. 

If the catastrophic sinking of the Titanic hasn’t put you off taking to the waters, a Belfast sightseeing cruise is another way to take in the Titanic Quarter and you’ll even get to sail the Titanic slipways, following (safely) in the footsteps of the notorious ship. Finally, don’t miss out on a visit to the recently opened Titanic Belfast, the world’s largest Titanic visitor experience where state-of-the-art exhibits chronicle the all-too-short history of what should have been the world’s greatest ship.
