Belfast is leading the many commemorations taking place around the world in memory of those who perished on the Titanic’s tragic maiden voyage 100 years ago.
2012, the centenary of the Titanic’s completion, departure and demise, sees Belfast embracing its connection to the trans-Atlantic liner, celebrating the city’s ship-building history and commemorating the great human loss suffered as a result of her sinking.
Titanic’s story is one of celebration and commemoration for Belfast; the two elements will always be intertwined.
Titanic Belfast, the world’s largest Titanic visitor attraction, opened in Belfast, Northern Ireland on 31 March on the very site where the ship was designed, built and first kissed the water.
