It took almost three years for the Titanic to grow from a pile of girders and rivets at Belfast’s harbour to the looming structure visible from anywhere in the city. With the sound of hammering rivets and clanging steel echoing around the streets, and the thousands of locals marching to work in the shipyard each morning, you could say the city grew around the ship as much as the ship grew up in the city.
Belfast was once the greatest ship building port in the world, it built the largest man-made structure ever moved, and made a ship of dreams a reality. When the Titanic slid from its slipway into the chilly waters of Belfast Lough, the pride of the city soared with it.
The story of the Titanic is etched, hammered and carved into the city of Belfast.
Having now completed the largest and best Titanic visitor attraction now available anywhere around the globe, the Titanic Belfast Visitor experience, the city that designed, built and launched the legendary transatlantic liner is now ready to tell the world its Titanic story.
The Titanic story extends beyond Belfast to many other parts of Ireland including Titanic´s last port of call Cobh in County Cork and to Ireland´s Titanic Village Lahardane in County Mayo.
