Over the past four months, the team behind the award-winning attraction has been introducing measures that are not only safe, welcoming and in-line with government guidance but do justice to the world-famous story and five-star visitor experience.
The new self-guided themed trail leads visitors on a journey through the Titanic Experience and on-board SS Nomadic. Discover this world-famous story in the place where it all began through the eyes of those whose innovation, hard work and ambition built what is now the world's most famous ship.
Launched in 2012 on the centenary of the ship's sinking, Titanic Belfast has proudly put Northern Ireland on the map as home of this iconic vessel. Over the past eight years, it has become one of the world’s leading visitor attractions and attracted over six million local, national and international visitors. The attraction has served both as a key economic driver and a symbol of Titanic’s strength and spirit.
As the country comes out of lockdown, locals are encouraged to get closer, go deeper and discover more, without the crowds. And the self-guided tour through Titanic Belfast and SS Nomadic can be combined with Titanic Belfast’s popular Family Explorer Trail through the galleries, making it the ultimate trip for families.
Locals are also encouraged to create Titanic Memories and discover the secrets and symbolism ingrained in the surrounding area with Titanic Belfast’s award-winning, guided outdoor Discovery Tour and the free Titanic Foundation’s Maritime Mile Treasure Trail which launches in August. External benches also allow visitors to extend their visit and picnic with a view of the Slipways.
For history buffs, who want to delve deeper and learn more about the men who built the ship, Titanic Foundation is opening up its vast shipyard collection and hosting a free exhibition – Out of Stores - in Titanic Belfast’s Andrews Gallery, showing how Belfast’s shipbuilding legacy was born.
Titanic Belfast is registered with the Visit Britain ‘We’re Good to Go’ industry standard, and through their own “Confidence Charter” is committed to ensuring the health and safety of visitors and crew.
