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!

Great piece of history. Tour guides very informative and interesting. Walking were the titanic actually sat in the dry dock was amazing. A lot of men used a lot of muscle on those days. Some achievement to build such a ship.

Take the self-guided tour around the Titanic pump house and dry dock then stop off for a coffee and a lovely home made burger in Cafe 1404 which is housed in the pump house.

After spending the afternoon in the experience I didnt fancy walking to the pump room and dock but Im so glad I did. Its an awesome sight and puts the finishing touch to the Titanic Experience. To me it should be part of the White Star pass and some form of transport should be provided as at the moment it... More

We were the only four people there which was great the sound effects made it so real and you could imagine being there . This was... More

We walked from Titanic Exhibition to Dock & Pump-house. Wasn't a particularly nice day but we thoroughly enjoyed walking around the pump house and then outside in the dock area.

It has a movie showing how the ships are built. Small lunch cafe. You can tour around and see how the ships were built. It is on the waterfront.

Walked there on the 26 January and it was closed :-( I think it is being repaired. We could just about see the dry docks through the fence. There were no signs to say it was closed. Cafe was open though.

Now before going to Belfast I read lots of reviews of people complaining about the walk here from the Titanic experience and was concerned it was really far. Now yes I have to admit it was a bit of a walk. I would say it took me and my mum about 20 minutes but as we were not in a... More

This is where the men who dreamt big put pen to paper in the industrial age which defined Belfast. Titanic, Laurentic, Nomadic, etc etc etc were all designed here. I walked through the drawing rooms a few years ago and walked into a room filled with rolled-up blueprints scattered everywhere and on every shelf. It was as if Thomas Andrews... More

This is a must see for all Titanic enthusiasts. it's easy to visit the Titanic Museum and see all the memorabilia it has to offer. But the Dock and Pump-House was there long before, and it's where the Titanic was in all its glory being built and before it set sail. Fascinating and well worth a visit.
