Description:

Titanic's Dock and Pump-House is the world's only authentic Titanic...

Titanic's Dock and Pump-House is the world's only authentic Titanic landmark. It is the last place Titanic rested on dry ground, and is her physical footprint in history. Visitors can experience life in 1912 by descending 44 feet into the colossal dry dock and walk in the footsteps of the men who worked in the shipyard a century ago. Experience the engineering behind the legendary pump-house, which still houses the original pumping engines, situated deep in the pump-well. The Pump-House also includes a visitor center and cafe, where you can relax and enjoy hot and cold snacks, refreshments, free wi-fi, or even pick up a souvenir or two from our Titanic gift shop. An inspiring and thought-provoking experience awaits you!

We visitors as a group of 6 adults but only paid a couple of pound each including a hot drink as an add on to the Titanic museum. Was great to see on top of the museum but as an attraction on it's own I'm not sure it would have held our interest overly well. Still, absolutely worth a visit... More

Well worth a visit to see how the industrial past is preserved in this iconic building. The Grayling dock is an excellent example of how ships were built in times gone by and how dry docks operated. The pump house is well preserved and you can see how everything worked!

This is well worth a visit , gives you a good idea of the size of the ship , a bit out of the way of the main Titanic Experience , but well worth the walk [ only about 10 minutes] .You can walk the dry dock where she sat , and see the engines in the pump house that... More

A fascinating little place which gave a great glimpse into the building of the Titanic and the lives of the people working on it. Quite a walk from town and it only took about half an hour to go around but it was well worth it.

An interesting place to visit, the Titanic & other Harland & Wolf ships were dry docked here during construction. It is located just up the road, about a 10 minute walk from the Titanic experience.

Pay the few extra pounds for the tour. Hopefully see it before you do the Titanic tour. You will know tons more of what you are looking at and understand the hustle and bustle of the shipyard.

Don't miss this amazing exhibition which includes seeing The Nomadic. The outside Discovery Tour which only lasts about an hr I'd also worthwhile. Give plenty of time. Hop on Hop off bus takes you there as it does to most sites in Belfast, and these bus tours are really good.
