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!

For diehard Titanic buffs who want some real, tangible history, please take an extra hour to visit the dry dock. More information in this place than I ever thought would be. They don't seem to be busy, which makes me afraid that this last piece of untouched history of Titanic might close to the public which would be a shame.... More

On a recent trip with my husband, back to my hometown of Belfast, we took the 4A bus into town and walked to the Titanic Quarter for a long overdue visit. The area around the docks is transformed totally, and I was so impressed with the landscaping, the excellent and good value eateries (I do love Belfast bread in sandwiches!),... More

Visited yesterday and what a find very interesting and you are able to get the feel on a large scale how hard the men would have worked in such a large scale. Fascinating history not glitzy but just real.

Only worth a stop if you are in the area. Big dry dock (sort of like a big hole). Stories are good etc. but if this was what I came to see, not worth it. OK Titanic add on.

It was good to see the size of the dock as it was left and the pump house which hadn't been prettied up but left to decay with time.The poor guys who built Titanic must have been devastated by the news of her demise.

The feeling that goes through you realizing that you are seeing and experiencing history! Walking on the footprints of tragedy. Do this the same day as the Titanic Experience. They are next to each other. Very interesting!!

Includes the pump house containing the original equipment used to empty the dry dock where the Titanic was worked on, and you can descend into the actual dry dock (which gives an excellent feel for just how large the ship was).

I loved the pump house tour! It was so evocative and real and steeped in history and tradition. Unlike the titanic experience which is cold and heartless and the only good bit is the exterior of the building. This tour was informative and full of culture. I would recommend it for anyone who is interested in the history and making... More
