Titanic Hotel Belfast: situated in the former Harland & Wolff Headquarters building and Drawing offices, the hotel opened in September 2017 following a four year development and restoration plan. The original high arched Drawing Offices where iconic ships such as RMS Titanic & Olympic were designed have been beautifully and sensitively restored. The Hotel has 119 rooms, and unique heritage spaces for events, including the original Telephone Exchange and former Boardroom for the building.
A new addition to the Titanic Quarter waterfront location is the Great Light, one of the largest lighthouse optics in the world, formerly serving the Lighthouse on Mew Island off the coast of Donaghadee. The rotating optic is displayed in a landmark curved glass structure in its new location on the Titanic Walkway, 500 metres of maritime walkway will connect the Titanic and Olympic Slipways and the Alexandra Dock, linking Titanic Belfast, HMS Caroline and the Thompson Dock.
HMS Caroline is a World War 1 Light Battle Cruiser that has been converted into a visitor attraction with a mixture of historic restoration, special effects and hands-on interactive exhibits.
Titanic Belfast is the world’s largest Titanic visitor experience, built at the top of the Titanic and Olympic Slipways from where RMS Titanic was launched over a hundred years ago, and was named the World’s Leading Tourist Attraction in the World Travel Awards 2016.
