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!

To call this "Titanic's dock" is a bit unfair, as it was still in use into the 1990s, but in reality unless you're into marine engineering it's not exactly fascinating. It's also a substantial hoof from Titanic Belfast. Prices in the cafe were nuts, we left empty handed. Inside the pump house there are pumps and a huge hydraulic accumulator.... More

What an interesting place, if only to lift the heavy, heavy tools that the workers of the shipyard used to build Titanic and many other ships.

Really interesting building with all of the old equipment still intact; there is something atmospheric about this possibly due to the whole Titanic experience. Walking around the gangway really gives you an idea of the scale of the operation and logistics required. Being able to go down into the dry dock and take photographs was awesome and quite humbling in... More

If you love the Titanic and the engineering behind fitting it out there go here! It's only a few pounds entry and its a great addition to the Titanic Experience. Not really my thing but my partner loves steam engineering and this pumping station and dry dock was a real treat for him!

A 15-min walk from Titanic Belfast, the Pump House, Dry dock is definitely a must. To stand on the ground where so many ships were built was a unique experience. The HUGE mooring bollards are all around the dry dock. A very hallowed ground, and you can get a sense of the sheer size of Titanic. There is a steady... More

Well worth the extra few pound, this dry dock gives you an idea of the sheer size of Titanic. The pump house is amazing, brings you right back in time.

The dock allows you to truly imagine the sheer size of Titanic. You can imagine her docked here while the final touches were added. The Pump House is a little run down, but it's all still there and there's a great display/video explaining how the pumps could pump 21 million gallons of water out of the dock in just 100... More

This is the third and least impressive of the Titanic sites in the Titanic quarter. You do get an idea of the ship from the dry dock in which the Titanic sat as it was fitted out after the launch but he pump house is certainly in need of a little TLC to bring it up to what I would... More

I recently visited the Titanic Exhibition for the second time. Last time I did not know about the Pump House and Dry Dock area, so this time I was determined to visit them. The directions from the Exhibition Centre are practically non-existent, but we eventually found our way on foot. The weather was very bad and it's a pity that... More
