Getting To Know Belfast – Cruise Port Guide
Our Belfast cruise port guide is an introduction to one of the most popular stops on a British Isles cruise itinerary. Belfast is Northern Ireland’s capital and the birthplace of RMS Titanic, among many other ships. It’s a hugely popular cruise port and quite frequently features on British Isles sailings. It is a vibrant city steeped in history and there are many things to see and do. First-time visitors should absolutely embrace the city centre and what it has to offer, including Belfast City Hall which is located opposite the shuttle bus drop-off point.
One of Belfast’s most popular attractions is undoubtedly Titanic Belfast, the word’s largest Titanic visitor experience. It sits beside the Titanic Slipways, Harland and Wolff Drawing Offices and Hamilton Graving Dock, where Titanic was designed, built and launched in 1912. The experience walks you through Titanic’s conception all the way to her final resting place in history.
