Titanic Belfast

There is something for every event organiser, offering a diverse and versatile selection of spaces across the beautifully restored SS Nomadic or in Titanic Belfast's unique building. What I wasn’t prepared for was the wave of emotion that hit me looking over the Belfast Lough and listening to the commentary describing the two life-size outlines of Titanic and Olympic's main deck embedded into the slipways below, certainly a heritage site packed with history and emotion. Having personally managed an event here, during my time as a freelance event manager, I can personally vouch that it delivered everything required for an outstanding event.

Looking for a unique venue within an hour of London, then this could be a perfect fit! Titanic Belfast is a visitor attraction opened in 2012, a monument to Belfast's maritime heritage on the site of the former Harland & Wolff shipyard in the city's Titanic Quarter where the RMS Titanic was built.
