The debris field exhibition was excellent and you really feel as if you’re in a submarine, it really brings home the loss of life when you see personal items. The visit to the nomadic was great, knowing you’re on the tender that took passengers to Titanic

A wonderful story about the history of Belfast, the linen mills, the dockyards and the working conditions they had to endure. The history of H&W was fascinating and the sad stories of those who didn't survive the tragedy.

Titanic Belfast Entrance Ticket: Titanic Visitor Experience Including SS Nomadic
It was so easy and convenient to prebook the Titanic experience with Viator. We simply redeemed our tickets at Customer Services and were given a slot in an hours time which allowed us to take in the SS Nomadic first. I really enjoyed the whole experience, just fantastic. Will definitely be back. Thank you so much.

History of the SS Nomadic

The SSNomadic stayed afloat for decades after the sinking of theTitanic. The ship continued to work as a tender for White Star’s luxury cruisers, and was used in both world wars before finally ending up as a floating party boat on the River Seine in Paris. Having been purchased by the Northern Irish government in 2002, the SSNomadic was restored and retired to the dry dock in Belfast where it now stands.
