Top 10 Attractions In Belfast

Belfast's number 1 attraction Titanic Belfast

Titanic Belfast

Opened in 2012 as part of the city's centenary commemorations of the sinking of RMS Titanic, Titanic Belfast is now the world's largest Titanic visitor experience.

This virtual museum is located in Belfast's docklands close by Harland & Wolff drawing offices where the ship was designed and beside the slipways where it was launched. If you're visiting the city you may be interested to know that the Drawing Offices have now been transformed into a hotel.

The building along with the shipyard's two cranes Samson and Goliath now dominate the city's skyline and are a constant reminder of Belfast's past maritime glories.

This Titanic experience takes you back in time from the ships design and creation to the stories of those who became part of the ship's legend.

Titanic is so much more that a Hollywood blockbuster, 1500 souls were lost, families and cities changed forever. Visit our essential guide for more on RMS Titanic and on details of what is arguably the city's top visitor attraction!

SS Nomadic - Belfast's top 10 attractions

SS Nomadic

With over 100 years of history, the SS Nomadic was built at the same time as RMS Titanic and like Titanic was designed by Thomas Andrews and owned by the White Star Line.

The purpose of this small vessell was ferrying first and second class passengers from Cherbourg out to deeper water where RMS Titanic was anchored.

The Nomadic was brought back to Belfast and at the time of the Titanic centenary was in the process of being restored. The ship now fully restored to its former glory is docked in front of the Titanic Belfast at Hamilton Dock. It welcomes tourists and visitors from around the world seeking the full Titanic experience.
