Titanic Belfast ready to welcome visitors starting on May 27
Titanic Belfast and the SS Nomadic, among the most famous ships in the world, are reopening in Belfast, Northern Ireland on Thursday, May, 27, 2021.
Named the World's Leading Tourist Attraction at the prestigious World Travel Awards in 2016, Titanic Belfast stands on the historic Titanic Slipways, the very place where RMS Titanic was designed, built and launched in 1912.
There is no bigger story, and no better place to hear it told than in the spectacular building which has welcomed more than six million visitors from 145 different countries since she first opened her doors exactly 100 years later.
The self-guided Titanic Experience is the most authentic way to discover the sights, sounds, smells and stories of the ship – now with a themed one-way tour route.
On entering, visitors are greeted with a panoramic eagle eye view down Belfast Lough and the actual slipways on which both the Titanic and her sister ship the Olympic slipped into the water.
An eclectic range of exhibits, models, interactive databases and elaborate computer-generated imagery illustrate the ship’s opulent fit-out.
The tour includes exact replicas of the cabins and there are journeys through the dining areas, the ship’s engine rooms, working interiors and deck promenade, where visitors can see and hear the oceans and feel the engines rumbling.
There is also a tribute to magnificent ship and the 1,500 men, women and children who lost their lives on Titanic’s tragic maiden voyage. The story is then brought up to the present with the discovery of the wreck and into the future with live links to contemporary undersea exploration.
Moored close by, SS Nomadic, the original tender vessel to the ‘ship of dreams’ and the last remaining White Star Line vessel in the world, is also ready to receive guests.
Discover the secrets and symbolism within the historic slipways and plaza on the outdoor Discovery Tour.
To ensure an enjoyable and relaxing experience for all, Titanic Belfast has developed a confidence charter for re-opening, in line with World Health Organization and government advice.
Tickets are now on sale on the attraction’s website and must be booked in advance.
