Everyone knows the story of the Titanic and the fate of many of her passengers. While the ship still remains at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, numerous artifacts capture the imaginations and hearts of people around the world. In 2012, a new site called Titanic Belfast opened up to the public.
This site has already drawn in huge crowds and continues to do so each year. Titanic Belfast was established as a monument to honor Belfast’s history of maritime greatness. Built on the the site of the former Harland & Wolff Shipyard. What makes this must-see attraction special is the fact that it was the site of the RMS Titanic’s construction. As you walk along Titanic Quarter, you can imagine what it must have been like to be there when the Titanic was being built. Titanic Belfast offers nine galleries that give you a look at the Titanic from a new light, from construction to her demise.
The tour even shows you what’s going on today to preserve the site and more. Green Isle Travel offers a 2-3 hour tour of Titanic Belfast, including time to check out the gift shop and restaurants.
