Although it has been over 106 years since The Titanic sank, it is still as captivating as ever. Today there are several Titanic tourist attractions to visit, experiences to enjoy and more! Here is what not to miss for The Titanic enthusiast.
Best Titanic Tourist Attractions To Visit
The Titanic Hotel – Liverpool, England
While there is a large variety of accommodation to choose from, I was drawn to the best – The Titanic Hotel while visiting Liverpool. Named and inspired by the ship, The Titanic. The spacious relaxing rooms with large windows are filled with characterful pieces from copper topped bedside cabinets to Titanic canvas wall hangings. The restaurant offers a large fresh buffet selection for breakfast and a scrumptious evening dinner menu. With so much style and an impeccable friendly service, why would you stay any place else!
Titanic Museum – Belfast, Ireland
Located at the exact location where Titanic was built, the Titanic Museum is full of stories, artifacts and much more!
Titanic In Nova Scotia, Canada
To make the most of the port of Halifax we took a pre-arranged tour. This included Peggy’s Cove with its panoramic views along the coast and iconic lighthouse as well as a few interesting Titanic stops. Halifax was the closest port of call to Titanic when she sunk back in 1912. The port now holds one of the largest collections of artifacts and pieces from the Titanic. We proceeded on to Halifax Public Gardens to hear the story of Titanic, see the model and onwards to the Fairview Cemetery. If you have the time or prefer to explore Halifax on your own, one of the main Titanic tourist attractions is the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic which includes an exhibition on the Titanic.
Some of the other New England delights you might like to try depending on the time of year are the lobsters, chowder, pumpkin beer, pumpkin pie, blueberry pie and blueberry ale.

V & A Dundee
The V&A Dundee came about during a chance conversation and a drawing done on a kitchen table. 10 years later the incredible sculpture designed by architect Kengo Kuma is finished and standing proudly on Dundee’s shorefront. Inspired by nature and Scotland’s cliffs the V & A Dundee looks as good in the inside as it does on the outside! Once inside you feel at ease and comfortable like being in your “living room”. Accessible for all to visit and enjoy the amazing space and galleries.
Currently with two main galleries and exhibitions showing “Ocean Liners: Speed & Style” step into the world of luxury travel and a bygone era, with exhibits on fashion, engines and see the unique piece from The Titanic, never been on display before! The other with over 300 exhibits is the Scottish Design Galleries, with lots of stories to tell from stage settings by John Byrne to the painstakingly restored Oak Room by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, that was once inside Miss Cranston’s Tea Room in Glasgow. There is so much to enjoy and discover. If you love both travel and maritime history don’t miss visiting the RRS Discovery right next door.
Did you know you can travel to all of the above locations by taking a cruise? Why not extend your stay to see more! It’s a great way to travel and see the world, with a different port of call almost every day to experience and enjoy.
