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

Spent a couple of hours one afternoon during a recent visit to Belfast, walking round the pump house balcony, watching first the short animation of how the pumping system worked and then a movie on the workings of the complete system. After this, we walked around the top of the dry dock, where there were information boards with quite a... More

Found this fascinating! Do watch the short film before going out to the dry dock. Very informative and what a feat of engineering for the era! Dry dock gives a great idea as to the actual size of the Titanic when you climb down into it. Amazing!

But it's still well worth a visit for Titanic fans. The pump house itself is fairly interesting, but won't keep you occupied for a very long time. The dry dock however is impressive, the shear scale of the space is amazing and you get a feel for how big this legend of a ship was. It's quite a walk from... More

When buying a joint ticket for this attraction we were warned that it was a 15 minute walk away and very nearly dissuaded from going. How glad I was that I took the plunge! We had rejected the crowded and pricey cafe at Titanic Experience and were offered instead home made soup and freshly made sandwiches at the Pump House.... More

Titanic Belfast was sold out till too late for us to make it in. So we opted for the pump house visit. it was interesting enough to wonder round and get an idea of the size of Titanic but it wasn't worth the £6 entry. We only paid it because we had driven all that way in the wet and... More

A long walk down to this area when little people are involved. Half heartedly added with not much to keep you there once you have walked. We were told about the drawing office but unless we missed a sign never saw it. No wonder so many didn't bother to go down.

An interesting place to visit, seeing where the Titanic was built, the size and scale of the dock and the power of the pump house. A must see for all interested in the Titanic, on our day there the cruise liner the Ruby Princess was in dock, seeing this alongside was good to see the scale of things. Staff very... More

As the title says just an old pump house , with a few enlarged pics and some of the old pumping equipment , hopefully this will be part of some sort of tourist attraction , but it's defiantly not worth paying in if your ever asked to . It's literally 2 rooms in and out again .

It's real, it's so interesting, it's amazing how it works, (my ten year old was well interested) This attraction is so REAL, compared to other titanic Belfast tour/display in the big fancy building. This one is the original, simply it's real, and brillant.

I did not expect much of this but it was a really good experience - seeing the dry dock put the size of Titanic and Olympic into perspective and the information given by the centre was excellent. A good afternoon out
