Discover the story behind Belfast’s maritime magic at the site of the Thompson Dry-Dock and Pump-House, once the beating heart of Harland & Wolff during the construction of the great White Star Liners – the Britannic, Olympic and most famously, the Titanic.
Today the Pump-House comprises of a Visitor Centre & Cafe, Interpretative Centre, meeting rooms & event space. We also operate daily tours - the only publicly accessible intact piece of the Titanic's great legacy which is open in the city of her birthplace - Belfast. The site is based in the Northern Ireland Science Park which is recreating, in the beginning of the 21st century, the buzz that was here at the beginning of the 20th century. Harland & Wolff was renowned worldwide for its innovative ideas on shipbuilding; it was at the forefront of technology, at the cutting edge, as are those companies attracted to NISP today.
With the centenary year of RMS Titanic’s launch on the horizon, there has never been a better time to visit Titanic’s Dock and Pump-House on Queen’s Island and revel in the full Titanic experience. Please use the links on the left to browse our site for more information.
