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

To stand in the dock bottom and think about the toil and labour to fit Titanic out, and imagine that it sunk after its first few days at sea. Tragic yet amazing too.

The whole Titanic build area has been revamped. Some of the old buildings remain and a brilliant new museum has opened. Beside it is docked the Nomadic, a small launch that was used to ferry passengers out to the liner where it couldn't come into dock.

You can walk through an actual place that was there when the Titanic was built and stand where it stood. So touching history for me was exciting.Seeing and touching original pumps and metal walkways gives a great sense of the place with how docks worked. The dry dock itself, standing in it sparks your imagination of the scale of the... More

It is incredible to be able to visit a site, that is a moment in history, that most people know about. Without wanting to sound sexist, this is possibly more for the boys, although I have to say, the actual dock astounded me. It really does give you an idea of the scale of The Titanic, incredible. Lots of information... More

We recently went to the Dock and Pump House through a Titanic Walking Tour and what an experience it was. It is a little way from the main Titanic exibition (approx 0.5 mile) but it was worth it. Our guide was extremley knowlegable and brought pictures of the dock with the Olympic Class liners (circa 1910-1912) to show where each... More

This is a real piece of history and was very disappointed to find it being exploited by over pricing, screens obscuring the dock from view and poorly trained guides. Pity, it could be so much more!!

To see where the men built ocean liners, and saw some equipment they used. No wonder it was called hard labour. More of a man's trip but enjoyable.

Went there yesterday and I am not disappointed. I've walked there alone without guide and it was quite hard to find. I think that exterior of the Pump-House needs a little renovation, but inside you will find nice cafe, small souvenir shop and actual pomps used to dry the dock or fill it with water. There's also big screen with... More
