Titanic Shipyard Belfast Taxi Tour
Belfast taxi tours – experience historic Belfast & beyond
100 years since RMS Titanic set sail on her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York. 100 years since that tragic event. Built in Belfast by Harland and Wolff, it was perhaps the most famous ship that ever sailed.
Interest has been renewed since the Hollywood film of the same name, The ‘ship that wouldn’t sink’ was created using the best materials and craftmanship inside and out.
Our Titanic Shipyard Belfast Taxi Tour will allow you to see where she was designed and built at Harland and Wolff shipyard. By 1897, the growth of the Harland and Wolff meant that its ship yards in Belfast occupied 80 acres and employed 10,000 men.

On 31 May 1911, The Titanic slid down Slipway No. 3 at the Queen’s Yard of Harland and Wolff and settled on the waters of the Victoria Channel in Belfast Lough. In her brief life, she would be the largest vessel ever built.
Let us show you the very best locations around the shipyard and listen as we recount tales from older generations. Belfast recently opened the fantastic Titanic Centre, an absolute must when visiting Belfast. We can take you directly to the door following our Belfast Titanic tour.
