These are just cranes however they are clearly a major part of Belfast’s history and can be seen from the Titanic area of Belfast! Well worth seeing just to see the colossal size of them!

It’s hard to miss these two gigantic cranes on the skyline! As you near the Titanic Museum, you can feel the impact of just how enormous they are! It gives a new perspective of just how large the Titanic was, too!

Now I realize that they are just large gantry style cranes used for ship building, but they are cool pieces of history. So many ships were built using them, and they now stand as monuments to a rich seafaring history. Its wonderful that they have been preserved and just neat to look at . Recommend walking the area around to try to get a good photo for the books.

These are two really huge cranes in the harbour area near the Titanic museum. It’s hard to miss them as they are really huge. In fact they are so huge, they have now become a part of the city skyline and are visible from far away. Sure, there is a history associated with them as these were used for building ships. You can take a picture (even from the bus) and thats about it. Surprised to see this listed as a place to visit on tripadvisor.
