Titanic Quarter Hotel
Visit the birth place of the Titanic, in the world’s largest Titanic themed exhibition. This is a must see whilst visiting Belfast and has recently won the award for the World Leading Attraction. Explore the shipyard, travel to the bottom of the ocean to discover the Titanic and uncover the true story behind it all in the City where it all began.
The museum is located on the slipways where she was constructed more than 100 years ago. There are nine galleries to explore including a moving recreation of the sinking.
The Titanic Exhibition Centre is just a ten-minute drive from the hotel. Alternatively, it can be reached easily by catching one of the frequent trains from Great Victoria Street Station, just around the corner from the hotel, direct to Titanic Quarter Station.
Harland and Wolff
The Harland and Wolff (H&W) shipyard was founded in 1862 by Edward James Harland and Gustav Wilhelm Wolff. The massive cranes of H&W still standing tall at Queen’s Island is a testament to Belfast’s glorious maritime past and one of the prominent landmarks in Belfast. These cranes are affectionately known by locals as Samson & Goliath. Designed by Krupp Ardelt, the first Goliath was completed in 1969 while the second one, Samson, was completed in 1974.
Harland and Wolff is famous for building RMS Titanic and all the ships intended for the White Star Line. Other well- known ships built by H&W include Titanic’s sister ships RMS Olympic and RMS Britannic, the Royal Navy’s HMS Belfast, Royal Mail Line’s Andes, Shaw Savill’s Southern Cross, Union-Castle’s RMS Pendennis Castle, and P&O’s Canberra.
During its heyday between 1900 and 1930, Harland & Wolff employed more people than any company in Belfast, due to the high demand for ocean liners, and is recognised worldwide as the biggest shipbuilders.
