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!

The Titanic was docked here for about a year to be fitted out prior to her maiden voyage. It is well worth the visit with the combo ticket purchase with the museum- if not for anything but to get an idea of the size of the ship (although I came in on a larger cruise ship, so I had to... More

Before or after visiting the Titanic Belfast Experience and the great building that it is, make sure to visit the this dock and pump house. The Titanic sat in this dry dock on the eve of her first and last voyage in April of 1912. Visit the massive pump house and walk down into the deep dock. It is simply... More

You can walk inside old building /2 minutes, see 3 big dated water pumps from above/ 5 minutes, short movie projection / 10 minutes and long walk in impressive dry dock where Titanic once parked... Thats it. You will got strange feeling that something is wrong- as all what they did was short simple movie and steel starways into the... More

A few weeks ago I took my young granddaughter to visit the Pump House at Titanic Quarter. I wasn't quite sure what to expect but found the tour a very informative and rewarding experience. My Grandaughter was in the process of learning about the Titanic as part of a history project so we thought of bringing her to the place... More

I find it interesting that people on here would rather go to the new Titanic Experience/not a museum as some people think. I have been to the pumphouse many times over the years and love looking at the 125 year old building of which I have photographed many times. Now that you can go down in to the Thompson Dock...

This was just an amazing piece of history to see where Titanic had been built. Her dry dock is just so impressive it make you wonder. It is not until you stand in the bottom of the dock do you get a sense of just how big she was. The pump house is also very interesting as well. This part... More

It's a 15-20 minute walk from the Titanic museum, door to door. Don't believe the guff that tells you it is less. Down in the dry dock you get a real sense of the scale of Titanic. The pump house is really fascinating, too. It's pretty much as it was when it fell into disuse, so what you are seeing... More

I enjoyed this a bit more than the titanic centre, the titanic centre is good & there is loads to see in it, the reason why I like this more is simple, you get to go down into the dry dock & walk around it, the dry dock was built specifically for the titanic. you get an idea of the... More
