Type: Historic Sites, Sightseeing Tours, Sights & Landmarks
Owner description: 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!

To be honest, I didn't expect much the first time I went. I thought it would be a case of wandering down into the dry dock and marvelling at the scale of it all. It was that, but the exhibit inside was also fascinating, being able to see and even touch original machinery. It's a bit cold and windy, but... More

not great for the extra money on the price of the main exhibit, its not a ten minute walk as advertised on the web site, its half a mile through the mostly demolished industrial area. Bonus is you get to walk past the well secured studios where 'game of thrones' is filmed. that was the highlight. sorry

My wife and I visited this a part of our visit to the Titanic center. We bought tickets that included this area. It is around 10 minutes walk from the new modern building but it is not very well sign posted. Ask for directions before you get there if you are on foot as you could waste some time getting...

Tour was very imformative, bare in mind you are doing it on your own and mostly reading, there is no tour guide, I would think a cost should be around £7.50 per head.

I organised for a group of international university students to visit. The tour guide was excellent - clearly very passionate about The Titanic. Very informative. Very good value for money. I, along with others in our group enjoyed this attraction more than Titanic Belfast; despite the latter being much more expensive.

The history of the Titanic is brought to you here. Most people have seen the film but to see and feel the history of it brings the scale of the disaster home, take the time out to visit.

We got to the titanic exhibition on opening so no cue, it was amazing so much to look at and it was even a bit overwhelming. The history of the ship is so important for Belfast to keep alive. Would recommend this to anyone that has a couple of hours to spare.

We decided to do this rather than the big Titanic experience and I found it deeply moving. To stand on the dock itself and imagine a little army working around the vessel that launched here is amazing. You can go down the steps into the well of the dock but we'd missed the last trip so we didn't get to... More

Well worth the time, give a real feel for how it operated. Well done to Belfast for all the investment.

On the walk from the Titanic Museum, you get worried approaching the pump house as it is such a contrast to the beautiful new museum, but carry on - it's worth it. What it lacks in shiny hi tec gear is more than made up for in the sense of history and SIZE, walk into the dry dock and do... More
