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 and Cafe, Interpretative Centre, meeting rooms and event space. It also operates 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.

Guided tours offer visitors an in-depth tour of the Dock and Pump-House. Learn how this feat of Edwardian engineering worked, brought to life through state-of-the-art animation, and discover what it was like to work in the bottom of the Dry-Dock from an original 1911 Apprentice! Hear the powerful pumps in the Edwardian Pump-House through a fully integrated sound and light show. Interpretative panels, archive film footage, and computer generated imagery tell the story of the people, the ships and the technology.

Let the Guided Tour take you through this maritime marvel and follow the scale trail along the dock to find out just how big it really is! (tour lasts approximately one hour) Outside of these hours visitors are still welcome to visit to view and walk along the Dry-Dock and view the exterior of the Pump-House and HMS Caroline (no charge).
