Harland & Wolff Drawing Offices Tours

Harland & Wolff Drawing Offices
Built in the late 1880s and expanded several times between 1900 and 1922, the Harland & Wolff Drawing Offices were where the plans for the RMS Titanic and numerous other White Star Line ships were drawn up. Though the offices are now occupied by the Titanic Hotel, key heritage rooms have been preserved. 

The Basics
Many Titanic Quarter walking tours and Northern Ireland day tours from Dublin pass by the old Harland & Wolff Drawing Offices, as do cruises on the River Lagan. Guests of the Titanic Hotel can explore the various heritage rooms (providing they are not in use), and read the information plaques situated throughout. 

Alternatively, buy tickets for the Discovery Tour at Titanic Belfast, which includes a walk through the offices with a guide. Among the preserved heritage rooms are the office of Thomas Andrews, the former managing director, and the office of Lord Pirrie, chairman of Harland & Wolff. Visitors can also pop-in for lunch or afternoon tea in the Drawing Office Two.

Things to Know Before you Go
  • Harland & Wolff Drawing Offices are a must for Titanic buffs.
  • A cocktail bar and restaurant in the hotel offer food, drink, and afternoon tea. 
  • Most of the Titanic Belfast Discovery Tour takes place outside; dress appropriately.
  • The Titanic Hotel is wheelchair accessible.

How to Get There
Find the Titanic Hotel Belfast in the Titanic Quarter, about 2 miles (3 kilometers) from the city center. Walking from the city center takes just 25–30 minutes. Alternatively, Translink Metro bus routes 26 and 26B travel between Belfast City Centre and the hotel, as does the Airport Express 600B. 

When to Get There 
Titanic Belfast Discovery Tours are held on select dates and are more likely to fill up during the busy summer months. Book in advance to ensure a spot on a tour. Be aware that the heritage rooms of the hotel are often rented for events, and may not all be available to view. 

The Titanic Quarter
After learning about the history of the Harland & Wolff Drawing Offices, visitors can continue on the trail of the Titanic in Belfast’s Titanic Quarter. Visitors can also step down onto the floor of Titanic’s Dock, where work on the ship was completed, as well as touring the comprehensive and interactive exhibitions of the Titanic Belfast experience. The Titanic Hotel is just steps away from the SS Nomadic, the tender ship to Titanic, which carried first- and second-class ticket holders from Cherbourg, France.
