Titanic Tours & Attractions

Begin your own voyage of discovery at the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum near Holywood, to see the Titanic Exhibition. On the way there from Belfast, you will pass her birthplace, Harland & Wolff Shipyard where her keel was laid in 1909. Belfast Lough was where her sea-trials were conducted. On April 2, 1912 she sailed away, with thousands of people waving from the Lough shores.

The museum holds 75,000 negatives in its Harland & Wolff Collection including hundreds of Titanic plates made by Belfast photographer R.J.Welch; reproductions of some are available in postcard and book form. Her tableware and bed linens, with the White Star emblem, were made in what is now the Belfast Linen Industry Conservation area around Bedford Street. A large table by the Belfast furniture-makers Gilbert Logan Ltd, is said to have been finished too late for her maiden voyage and is now in the Belfast Harbour Commissioners Office at Corporation Square.

The most enduring monument to her disastrous end is the Titanic Memorial in the grounds of Belfast City Hall. Guided tours of this majestic Edwardian building (which was completed shortly before Titanic was started) give insights to the affluence and optimism of the city at that time. In Comber, east of Belfast, you will find memorials to Thomas Andrews, Titanic's chief designer, who chose to perish with the ship he knew "down to the last rivet". In Bangor, there is a memorial to John Simpson, the ship's surgeon, in the Abbey graveyard. There are also a number of Places to Shop where you can pick up some Titanic memorabilia.
