The SS Nomadic Belfast is one of Northern Ireland's unsung heroes when it comes to attractions. This ship was actually the original tender ship and did in fact transfer some eager passengers to the Titanic only a few days before they met their very tragic end back in 1912 in those icy Atlantic waters. The SS Nomadic, the White Star Lines only remaining ship, now stands proudly next to the mighty Titanic Museum near to the very dock where she was built. A trip round the Titanic's younger sister is most certainly an experience I'll never forget. Knowing that this was the closest thing I would ever get to the Titanic was an exhilarating yet an eery feeling, and at every turn there was something amazing to discover from the sturdy engine room, to the ships toilets, complete with a famous Thomas Crapper toilet still installed, a true Top 100 Attraction!
SS Nomadic Belfast
SS Nomadic is the biggest authentic Titanic artefact in the world and the only tangible link to the Olympic class liners!
Built in 1911 she was the tender ship for Titanic. Constructed alongside her big sister, she is now restored to her original glory, and is the only remaining White Star Line ship in the world and a lasting legacy of Belfast's shipbuilding industry.
Once on board, visitors can learn about her turbulent and exciting history; with active service as a mine sweeper and troop carrier in both World Wars, over fifty years of experience carrying thousands of passengers, to the world's largest trans-Atlantic liners and nearly thirty years as a restaurant and party venue moored beside the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Nomadic has a million stories to tell.
Fully interactive, with games, dressing up, projections and lots of original features, the ship is appealing for all ages! As part of your tour, you will be transported back in time, travelling through the first and second class lounges, led by one of our qualified guides who will provide a unique insight into the amazing life of Nomadic before being let loose on the decks to explore at your own pace.
Make your way down today and join us in celebrating over 100 years of authentic maritime and social history and on behalf of the Nomadic Crew we look forward to welcoming you on board!
