Things To Do
The Titanic Experience extends over 9 interactive and impressive galleries, with multiple dimensions and angles to the exhibition's presentation, with special effects, dark rides, full-scale reconstructions and cool interactive features to explore! Travel back in time to the 20th century and experience the sights, smells, sounds and stories of the RMS Titanic, as well as the city and people that made her.
Explore the shipyard land, venture the decks and travel to the depths of the ocean. Uncover the true legend of the great Titanic - in the city where it began. The journey concludes with the discovery of the wreck and a modern analysis of the disaster. Visitors can hop inside a cabin which glides around a mock-up of Titanic's shipyard and a full-scale replica of the ship's 23.7m-high rudder.
Complete your Titanic Experience with a list of the world's last remaining White Star vessel and RMS Titanic’s original tender ship, the SS Nomadic. You can also walk the decks here, explore the ship and journey through the 100 years of authentic maritime and social history. There's a self-guided tour starting every 20 minutes, if you're on a tight schedule you need to book your time slot ahead of your visit and arrive 15 minutes before it starts to confirm your presence. They're very popular so it's worth doing especially in summer! Get on onboard for a fantastic day!
Take a walk down the Maritime Mile - it's The Great Light is located on the new Titanic Walkway. The walkway is 500 metres long! It begins on Victoria Wharf and connects the Titanic Slipways to HMS Caroline and the Thompson Dock.

Looking to Grab and go? The Gallery Cafe is the perfect solution for families who need a quick snack or beverage. This Express Food Bar offers local and seasonal produce with a range of specialty coffee and range of fine teas.
Soak up the ambience in more of a sit down / restaurant setting at The Pantry. Inspired by The Pantry on board White Star Line vessels and the passengers there, this restaurant showcases the very best of local seasonal Northern Ireland produce all freshly prepared by a team of Chefs.
Bursting with nostalgia, Hicksons Point offers an authentic 1900’s public house setting, serving up the spirit of the shipyard with traditional music, entertainment, heritage décor and locally produced food. We think all families will LOVE this setting.
