Overview
More
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!

If you are interested in the story of the White Star Line and it’s partnership with Belfast’s Harland and Woolf to build Titanic and her sisters, a visit to the Thompson Graving Dock is a must as it was here in this gigantic space that...More

We visited the Titanic Experience inside, then began to explore the grounds and dock areas. The Titanic Experience had more bells and whistles, lots of lights and media interactions, but this simple and low keyed experience hit all the marks for me. It is famed...More

Worth a visit as gives you an insight of how the past shipbuilder lives and worked. A lot of steps to walk down the dry dock

This is a 10-15 minute walk from the Titanic building so consider driving or visiting separately particularly if weather is dull or you have tired kids. The tour is self-guided and more basic than the Titanic centre. It's good to see the scale of the...More

This is the real place to visit, to see the actual pump house and stand in the dock where the Titanic was built, rather than the visitor centre. It was amazing to stand down in it too.

Are you talking about the dock and pumphouse or the Titanic exhibit itself? This is a separate tour it looks at the original building docks and is on a mini train. It certainly doesn't take 5 hours to do but should be done... More

Allow a little more than an hour. We got there 45 minutes before they closed and had just enough time to go down the stairs and walk around the dry dock. We didn't get to see inside the pump house. An hour and a half... More
