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!

Interesting if you add a visit to the museum

Having read so much about the Titanic, it is interesting to go and see where it all begun. But visiting the Titanic museum is a necessary complement.

To really get a feel for the scale the of the Titanic and what a massive undertaking that was in 1911 this is worth a stop. The engineering and manual effort required to build a ship of this scale are staggering. Go on a day with nice weather and make sure you go down inside and walk around.

Been to Pumphouse twice now over last few years. Really worthwhile having a work around just to appreciate the work that went into building ships esp Titanic back in early 1900's. Although best to visit on a day that weather is good.

Interesting, especially the film they show is great to see how Belfast was when the shipyards were in full swing. But too 'dry' for kids of 10 /14, they'll loose interest very quickly.

Loved that the dock actually gives you a good perspective of the size of Titanic, You can see the size from the top rim of the dock, but when you're stood in the base of the dock, you can really appreciate the gigantic size of this magnificent vessel. Don't miss out on this experience. The only draw back is you... More

The pump house was OK, if you like to see 100 year old pumps. There is some Titanic history and there are a couple of short films running which give some information. The dry dock is worth seeing just for the sheer size. Thought it was just a bit expensive

To get to go down into the dock where titanic was held is amazing and for less than £10 it's definitely worth the visit! I was in awe at the size and history of the dock!

Having taken the open-top bus to the Titanic Experience and moved on one stop to the Dock and Pump-House. whilst these are possibly not worth a visit on their own they are a perfect compliment to the Titanic Experience giving through the immensity of the dry dock a first-hand idea of the huge size of the Titanic.

After visiting the Titanic exhibition we took a walk up to the pump house which you should allow yourself about 15minutes to walk up from the main exhibition centre to the dock & pump house. This is awesome the dock itself shows just how big Titanic really was and it really does take your breath away.

My Grandfather was a riveter in the shipyard. To be there with my grown Sons was very special. The scale of the dry dock is impressive but hopefully you won't face the inclement weather we did which made the visit short in duration. It's still worth the effort.
