Quingo Scooters are travelling to Belfast as part of our Accessible Attractions series. If discovering historic artefacts, as well as learning about maritime history interests you, the Titanic Experience is for you!
Situated in the heart of Belfast, the experience is beside the historic site of this world-famous ship’s construction. Over six-floors, you are taken through the story of the RMS Titanic, from construction and launch to its tragic end. A must-see on any trip to Belfast, this experience has become one of Northern Ireland’s top attractions. These innovative and interactive galleries retell the Titanic story in a fresh and insightful way for a captivating day out.
The self-guided Titanic Experience features 9 interactive galleries that explore the sights, sounds, smells and stories of the Titanic and its history, through the city and the people who built her. The history is brought to life across a series of attractions:
- The Maiden Voyage Gallery: Capturing the excitement of the launch, this gallery transports visitors from four embarkation ports, Belfast, Southampton, Cherbourg and Queenstown to the Titanic’s deck promenade. In addition to seeing and hearing the ocean, you’ll meet Fredrick Dent Ray, a dining room steward and survivor through inventive technology. You’ll also be able to see an original first class luncheon menu, as well as the last letter ever to be written on board the Titanic.
- Titanic Slipways: Harland and Wolff’s 1907 slipways were re-designed to accept the huge hulls of the new Olympic-class liners. Behind the Titanic Experience, you can now travel down the slipways where the Titanic was built and launched over 100 years ago in 1911.
- Afternoon Tea (Available on Sundays): After a busy day of exploring, step back in time to a period of elegance and luxury with the Titanic Sunday Afternoon Tea. Set in the opulent surroundings of the Titanic Suite, you’ll be able to pose for pictures on the stunning replica of the Titanic’s staircase. Serving a selection of tea and treats, with a children’s menu available, this Afternoon Tea is an experience not to be missed!
