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!

Visited the Titanic Dock and Pump House on 28th February (we had bought the ticket at the Titanic Museum which included a trip over here). I imagine that not a lot has been changed here as it looked extremely old, lots of rust and peeling paint, so very authentic to how the place would have looked way back when. I... More

This is authentic and worth a visit. The pump house is pretty old and the dry dock is massive. Helps to get a good idea of the scale of Titanic. Needs a bit of TLC, but if you are fan of more genuine historical sites, the pump house and the actual dry dock, are definitely worth visiting.

When you are in Belfast do not forget to visit Titanic's Dock where the big ship was made. You will feel the history. Walk around and touch the history, see the dock where the giant was born where thousands of hands were making the impossible... (Photos are from september 2010)

For any Titanic enthusiasts this is a must! It brings the whole building of Titanic to life. The fact you can walk the whole area of the Thompson Dock where Titanic was built is totally amazing. Their are photos at strategic places around the dock taken when Titanic was being built and you can see the size of her in... More

Beaming full of history. The Pump-house that served Maritime history so well also has a good café with affordable food, and especially make a very good cup of tea! The Titanic dock is right next to the Pump-House and is well worth visiting. Almost humbling to think just how much work went into fitting the Titanic and other historic ships.... More

Visited yesterday after a comprehensive visit to the Titanic Experience nearby. Given that the Dock and Pump House have been left almost exactly in the condition in which they were used, they add greatly to an understanding and appreciarion of what the whole shipbuilding business entailed. We walked about 500 yards (metres) from one to the other. I don't know... More

plan about 2 hours to see and read everything there. A little spendy to get through the front door, but it was worth it. Great history in there!

I am still in awe with this feat of engineering. It was built over 100 years ago and in its hay day it pumped out over 1million gallons of water in less than two hours. There is a very good video about the history of the pump house-well worth watching.

The visit to the pump house wasn't up to much. It was £9 extra in total for 2 adults and 2 kids. It's about 15 walk from Titanic centre. You are just shown a quick video about how the water in pumped in and out of the dry dock. Another video had a problem and only showed 5 mins of... More
