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! « less

The history, the size, being able to walk through the dry dock where the Titanic was being built was just amazing. The technology of the pumps was amazing for their time.

This was the best part of my trip to the Titanic Quarter. The pumphouse was interesting but I didn't really grasp the scope of what went on there until I saw the dry dock. It took my breath away - I must have spent an hour and a half just wandering around down there. I was lucky because for the... More

A must if you are in Belfast. It's like going back in time, with the sounds of the workers coming through when you climb down into dock

We went here today on Friday October 10th and we basically had the place to ourselves. To see the pumps used for the titanic and the dry dock was outstanding. We were able to walk the length of the dock upstairs and down on the ground where the titanic entered. This was amazing and fantastic and I recommend anyone to... More

This was the eye opener for us. The dry dock is unbelievable. You can climb down into it and walk the length. Incredible. Takes a lot to imagine the ship in there and way, way above it.

While the attraction doesn't have a lot of "bells and whistles," it's actually better for it. It's a must to walk around the perimeter of the dry dock and take time to meditate on what the atmosphere must have been like when the Titanic was here. There is an option to walk down into the dock, so if you would... More

You get your ticket and first of all visit the pump house, after that you have the chance to go down 44 ft in the craving dock where the Titanic was embellished. Wear nice and comfy sport shoes or runner, you will walk a lot!

We found this a little bit "Meh" as an attraction as a whole, but it's worth visiting in order to go to the bottom of the dry dock. Only from the bottom do you get a feel for the scale of the dock - and hence the Titanic.
