Description: Titanic's Dock and Pump-House is the world's only authentic Titanic...
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!

This is a must when visiting the Titanic centre. It gives a great perspective to the scale required to build this huge ships and the engineering involved in the pump house to fill and empty the dry dock. 10 min walk from the centre ,worth the stroll

We found this a very interesting visit, however, for the price we paid, there wasn't a great deal to see. We had had a spectacular tour at the Jail that morning and had read they did tours here too, so got really excited. Only, when we arrived, it was a self tour. Ok, that's fine, but I was a little...

I ended up here after another traveler recommended it to me, and it was honestly the best decision I have made. From the very first moment until the end it was well thought out, informative, instructive and thoroughly enjoyable. And the gatekeeper, Chris, made the whole experience go from great, to unbeatable. His knowledge and sense of humor and just... More

Shows how the titanic and other ships of her size were dry docked. The pumping machinery is still there but not in use. If you want to descend into the dry dock there is a flight of steel steps which are definitely not for the disabled.

It's a 10 min walk from the glossy Titanic Exhibition. But well worth it! Taking you back in time to experience the workings of the dry dock. The scale of the pump house is amazing. Then you get the full effect by climbing down into the dry dock where Titanic was last on dry land Well worth a visit

Don't visit the historic place with the same mindset of visiting a museum. This is more of scenario of how the huge vessel was made the effort etc..

Such marvellous engineering provided the means to empty the dock in about an hour and a half. This is where Titanic received all of her internal fittings before her fateful maiden voyage.

Possibly the only remaining artefact from the Olympic Class Ships where you can really gauge the sheer scale of the Olympic and Titanic, these things were huge. I wasn't planning to go inside the dry dock, I would have been content simply having seen her and considering we had already visited the Nomadic and Titanic Belfast on the same day... More
