How many Days should I Spend in Derry?

For an authentic experience in Derry, it is suggested that at least 2 full days and 1 night be allocated to discover the city’s offerings. The duration of the visit is dependent on the visitor’s preferences and availability; however, we highly recommend the aforementioned timeline to ensure an in-depth exploration of the city. We highly recommend this 3-day itinerary from Belfast.

Titanic Museum Belfast

No ship is more famous than the luxurious Titanic and nowhere on earth is better equipped to tell its story than the Titanic Quarter of Belfast. Titanic Belfast museum is a must-see attraction. The 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 famous RMS Titanic was built. 

It tells the stories of the Titanic, which hit an iceberg and sank during her maiden voyage in 1912, and her sister ships RMS Olympic and HMHS Britannic. 

Visitors can also explore the berths of the famous Nomadic, the last remaining White Star Line ship on earth. Travelers are transported more than 100 years back in time after boarding the newly restored ship.

Titanic’s Dock and Pump-House

This historical site is the first and last dock of the world-famous Titanic. In April of 1912, the massive cruise-liner shored up to set sail from the Belfast port and never returned. Today, visitors can explore the shipyard where this behemoth of a boat came to life. 

The dry dock and pump-house are perfectly preserved and expert guides unlock a mystical world where engineers built an “unsinkable” ship and the well-to-do embarked on a journey from which they would not return.
Explore the Titanic Quarter with the Belfast city tour.

The Shipyard Ride is part of Titanic Belfast which is a monument, museum, and experience built on the exact site where the Titanic was originally built in 1912 in Belfast, Northern Ireland. This video shows you The Shipyard Ride, an educational and interesting ride of the building of Titanic. The ride travels around a replica of the Titanic’s Rudder.
