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

This place gives a far greater sense of history than does the main Titanic Belfast experience and the £3 entry to the Pump House and Dry Dock is great value. I didn’t know about it in advance so just stumbled across it by walking along the road. It really brings home the sense of scale of the Titanic and her... More

Family of four visiting. The place is amazing in itself, but there's basicly little to see. There is the pump room which is not that fascinating and then there is the dry Dock which makes the whole trip worthwhile. It all gives you an impression of the size of Titanic. We took a non guided tour, but I would recommend... More

We got a discount ticket for the Titanic Belfast and the Dock & Pump-house. Pump-house has a lot of history attached to it, something the staff emphasise. Definitely worth the five-minute walk down from the Titanic Belfast, but just beware that there is no direct path and there is a stretch with no path. A taxi (about £3/£4) is needed... More

You can actually include the dock and pump house in your Titanic exhibition ticket price, is just a 10 minute walk away. The pump-house itself is a good shout for Titanic enthusiasts but the Thompson Dock itself is brilliant, you actually don't appreciate the size of the Titanic until you see the size of the dock. It's slightly eerie but... More

the pump house is worth the visit if you go to the museum you must visit here to top it all off to see how the pumps filled and emptied the dry dock . And when you go down into the dry dock there are sound effects of the ship being built and where the ship was fitted out .But... More

This was fascinating to look round such an iconic film to be brought to life with facts and visual aid. I was blown away by the experience. Wish I had taken the tour but I was too tired :( So much historical value.

This was interesting, but I wish there was more information available to those who don't manage to make one of the tours. I recommend this over the museum, though I suppose its personal preference. If you expect to have a highly polished experience, this may not be your thing. If you want to get a sense of scale of the... More

We purchased entry to the Pumphouse and Dock along with tickets to the Titanic Experience, very good value for money. It’s not very easy to find, and really does need better signing from the main Titanic Experience. We had the self guided tour. Once you arrive at the Pumphouse, you get to have a quick look around and watch some... More

I very much enjoyed this tour - walking the space that the actual Titantic sat in dry dock before setting of on her voyage. The photos we were shown of the exact positions and places were amazing!

The new attraction is a great add to the Belfast tourisme offering. A beautiful designed building leads you through the history of the city and the making of the Titanic. You really get a taste of how this period was for the people living there. The setup of the exhibition is exactly right - not too long and with good... More
