What is it? Belfast’s monumental museum and visitor centre dedicated to the Titanic and her sister ships built at the same shipyard.
Why go? Titanic Belfast ticks a lot of boxes: it’s as much a hit with anyone genuinely interested in maritime and economic history as it is with anyone who ever shed a tear to Celine Dion or dreamed of dating Jack (yes, you at the back blushing!). For additional points, it’s also a stunning building located in a fascinating part of Belfast.
As the largest city in Northern Ireland, the most awesome things to do do in Belfast involve the town's famous industrial heritage and major port. Possibly the most famous ship ever built—the Titanic—hailed from a Belfast shipyard and is remembered in the city's Titanic Experience, a hugely popular stop for tourists.
The best part of visiting (in addition to the top restaurants in town, of course) is the proximity to other cities, ideal day-trip destinations in stunning rural areas and on the coastline. But, if you are confining yourself to city limits, make sure to stop by the brilliant Belfast pubs while ticking off other items on this awesome guide to the town.
