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!

This is a good 10 min walk from Tatanic experience, and not worth the small £3 entrance fee. Not much to see, but it does give an idea of what it must have been like working in a dry dock.

This attraction seems to be forgotten in all the guidebooks and as a result is confusing to find. However, I would totally recommend it - especially if you're not a museum person -because it brings the history to life. The main experience here is to...More

Not a great deal to see in detail BUT the dock gives an amazing insight into the colossal size of the Titanic and therefore a unique insight into this tragic piece of history

We visited the Dock and Pump House after the Titanic Belfast. Whilst it was interesting to see inside the Pump House and the Dock where Titanic was built it was not all interactive and should really have been free to visit. On the plus side...More

The main Titanic museum is so much better. This place is nothing more than a few empty aging pumps in a room. Followed by "use your imagination" visual cracking signboards at the dock. Which is nothing more than a huge concern dock full of moss...More

This is excellent value for very little money. It is safe to view the pumps inside and look over the edge of the dry dock. However it was a very wet day on my visit and my shoes would not grip at all on the...More

but visiting the Thompson Drydock is well worth the 6 pounds. Go to the far side of the dock and down the stairs to get a different perspective/photo taking opportunities.

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
