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! « less

It's a bit daunting to be at the bottom of a dry dock of that size, especially as there is a bit of running water... fun to wind up gullible family members, friends or other visitors! Good place if you've an interest in industrial history, which I think should probably more a draw than The Titanic, but the tourist will... More

We have been around the world and back and I honestly must say, this was well worth including in our Titanic Tour of Belfast. It is so impressive and amazing. A Real and true part of the Titanic history. We loved it and will be recommending. Worth every penny. Our guide and all the staff were really friendly and the... More

This was not my choice of place to visit on the Open Heritage day September 14. However my better half wanted to see it so we both went. Parking was the first issue. You cant park outside given the numerous double yellow lines and the adjacent car park you have to pay for. Then we found it was not a... More

It's good to visit the Dock and Pump-House to really understand just how large the Titanic was, but unless you're really interested in pumps and how they worked in 1912, this attraction may seem a little dull. I took my Dad, he loved it, but he's big into 'how things work'(to the point that he was taking photos of the... More

I love old buildings that have been preserved to tell their story and the dock and pump-house are just that. If you want the feel of the excitement of outfitting this famous ship, walk the extra distance to this site.

This site should be free, a couple of old pumps and a very large hole in the ground. The guy who issued our tickets was great with a lovely personality. They have a little movie to go with the visit of a 'shipyard worker' and I couldn't make out what he was saying and I was brought up in Belfast.

It was neat to see where the Titanic was built, and that's about it. They had a much smaller amount of info in comparison to the Titanic Museum, which is fine. but I think it was too expensive for what you got. They had some information posted that didn't involve the Titanic at all, seemed like they were trying to... More

It was so interesting in scale and information. We did this tour before and could access the drawing office where the Titanic etc were planned. A bit disappointed that this no longer forms part of the tour. But still enjoyed

If you are looking for the place where the Titanic was built then this is it. It’s all very neat and tidy and like most museums it’s difficult to imagine how it was in its day. I hope they keep the H & W cranes forever as they present a great statue of remembrance and are big reminders of a... More

You've got to see this if you visit the Titanic exhibition, just to get a feel for the sheer size of the Titanic and complete the whole experience. Whilst this isn't as polished as the main centre, it will transport you back in time to the early 1900's. You can go down into the actual dry dock and walk the... More
