Titanic Belfast Museum & Experience
The museum is located on the slipways where it was constructed more than 100 years ago. There are nine galleries to explore including a moving recreation of the sinking.
Titanic Belfast is just a ten-minute drive from Clayton Hotel Belfast. Alternatively, it can be reached easily by catching one of the frequent trains from Great Victoria Street Station, just around the corner from the hotel, direct to Titanic Quarter Station.
Harland and Wolff Shipyard
The Harland and Wolff (H&W) shipyard was founded in 1862 by Edward James Harland and Gustav Wilhelm Wolff. The massive cranes of H&W still standing tall at Queen’s Island is a testament to Belfast’s glorious maritime past and one of the prominent landmarks in Belfast. These cranes are affectionately known by locals as Samson & Goliath. Designed by Krupp Ardelt, the first Goliath was completed in 1969 while the second one, Samson, was completed in 1974.
Harland and Wolff shipyard is famous for building RMS Titanic and all the ships intended for the White Star Line. Other well- known ships built by H&W include Titanic’s sister ships RMS Olympic and RMS Britannic, the Royal Navy’s HMS Belfast, Royal Mail Line’s Andes, Shaw Savill’s Southern Cross, Union-Castle’s RMS Pendennis Castle, and P&O’s Canberra.
H&W slipways and the original drawing offices can still be visited today and are open to the public as part of the Titanic Belfast Discovery Walking Tour.
Built as a tender to ferry first-class passengers aboard Titanic, SS Nomadic has returned to Belfast’s Titanic Quarter and sits in front of the Titanic Experience. Tickets for SS Nomadic can be purchased separately or as part of your Titanic Experience.
Clayton Hotel Belfast is located in the heart of Belfast city close to Titanic Quarter area and many other local attractions.
