Why don’t you go down to the Belfast docks and visit the place where the Titanic was built? Located not far from the Titanic Belfast Experience, Titanic’s Dock and Pump-House is nothing less than a dock with a dry dock, where the largest liner of the White Star Line was once built. An emblematic place, entirely visitable, which will teach you more about the construction of the Titanic!
For those who are passionate about the terrible sinking of the Titanic, this dock in Belfast is the safest way to follow in the footsteps of the old liner! You will discover the places where thousands of men gathered their know-how to build a liner of excessive dimensions and luxury!
You will be able to walk along the dry dock, visit the pumping station that used to dry out the hold, and discover the important infrastructure of the time that enabled the ship’s construction work to be carried out.
The visit is extremely well documented and is essentially dedicated to explaining the engineering methods of the time that allowed the Titanic to be built.
You’ll also learn about the liner’s broader history, from the creation of her plans by the White Star Line to her sinking, and have a fascinating explanation of the causes of the tragedy.
Indeed, the metal used in the construction site would not have been sufficiently adapted to navigate in cold water: thus, the thermal shock, coupled with the impact with the iceberg, and the fact that the watertight bulkheads did not go all the way to the top would have sealed the terrible story of the Titanic.
Titanic’s Dock and Pump-House is a true return to the roots, which will allow you to better understand the history of the liner!
