Overview
Learn the real story of the RMS Titanic—from its design to its 1912 ill-fated maiden voyage—on this 1.5-hour guided walking tour around Belfast’s Titanic Quarter. You’ll past the drawing offices where the British passenger liner was designed, meander along the slipways where it first touched water, and journey 44 feet down to the floor of the massive dry-dock where the Titanic was finished. The tour also includes a visit to the HMS Caroline, World War I’s last surviving battleship.
What to Expect
Meet your guide outside the Titanic Visitor Experience in Belfast, and then head out on your walking tour, tracing the legacy of the Titanic ship around the city. Hear the tale of the boat’s maiden voyage in 1912 when she collided with an iceberg and sank – a tragic story that captured the hearts of people around the world.

First stop is the exciting Titanic Quarter, a multimillion-pound waterfront development on the site where the Titanic was built. Learn of Harland and Wolff – the shipbuilding supremos who built the fated ship -- and walk past the drawing offices where plans for the Titanic were drawn up by their chief designer, Thomas Andrews.

Stroll to the waterside and walk along the slipways where the Titanic first touched the water, over 100 years ago. After undergoing a substantial regeneration project, the slipways have been restored to their former glory and now host many of Belfast’s open-air concert and events.

Continue to Alexandra Docks to see the HMS Caroline, another of Belfast’s famous ships! The sole surviving WWI battleship, the boat is beautifully preserved and serves as a poignant reminder of Belfast’s integral navy role during the two world wars.

Head back to the Titanic Quarter and walk down a set of stairs, descending some 44 feet (13 meters) below ground to visit Titanic Dock and Pump House. Walk around the spot where the Titanic last rested on dry ground to get a sense of the ship’s physical size, and then visit the old pump house to see original pumping machines and engineers’ workshops.

Your tour finishes at the pump house, and you can stay longer to look at the interactive displays and movie clips independently, if you wish. Alternatively, the Pump House Café and gift shop are located on ground level and are both well worth a visit!
