Tour a Fated Ship
Built at the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast, the RMS Titanic was the largest ocean-liner cruise ship of its time. It was a monumental design, but suffered a tragic end on its maiden voyage.

The Titanic Building

If you are visiting Northern Ireland, and are interested in ships, then Titanic Belfast, which opened in March 2012, is a wonderful place to go and learn all about the ship's history, construction, and untimely end.

The building has an innovative modern design made to resemble the Titanic itself. Inside there are nine galleries that will guide you through the whole of the Titanic's lifecycle. Discover why Belfast was the perfect place for its construction, take a tour of the ship through an interactive dark ride which uses special effects, animation, and full-scale reconstructions to bring the experience of being on the ship to life. You will get to see the fit-out of the ship, from the first class suites to the engine room.

Titanic's Banquet Hall

Hear about the lives of crew and passengers, and relive their final moments. Learn about the aftermath of the tragedy, and take a journey to the bottom of the ocean, where ship was discovered in 1985.

There is also an Ocean Exploration Centre that provides insight into the 21st century technology we use today to make seafaring voyages safer.

Titanic Belfast has a gift shop, and a cafe & restaurant with a menu inspired by the dishes served on the RMS Titanic. The Exhibition is open every day, all year round. Adult tickets can be bought at the door for £13.50, or you can book online for a discount.

As well as the exhibition itself, the Titanic Quarter surrounding the building also has several activities you can take part in, including walking and boat tours, and a boat safari ride.
