Belfast City Hall Titanic memorials

more than a year ago

Stop and reflect on the tragedy at the City Hall's Titanic Memorial Garden whose stark 9m long plinth bears the name of every individual who perished. The Garden officially opened on 15 April 2012, the centenary of the ship's sinking. The Garden's flowers and plants are filled with symbolism, with many flowering in April to commemorate the deceased.

The nearby 1920 Titanic monument stone sculpture features a female figure of Thane looking down on two sea-nymphs lifting a drowned sailor from the sea. The statue faces east toward the Harland & Wolff shipyard where Titanic was built. Heading the names of 22 local men who perished is Titanic's designer, Thomas Andrews.

The grounds are also home to a statue of shipyard founder Sir Edward Harland and plinth dedicated to Lord Pirrie, shipyard chairman at the time of Titanic. Before you arrive, take a virtual tour by clicking here.

And inside City Hall is a beautiful stained glass window dedicated to the disaster.
