The Titanic, the most famous ocean liner of all time. Built in Belfast and sailed on her maiden voyage from Southampton on Wednesday 10th April 1912. A crowd of 100,000 gathered to watch her leave.
The flagship of the White Star Line and the largest man-made object in the world that floated, she dwarfed the Southampton skyline. Our tour takes us around places and venues intrinsically linked to the Titanic, her crew and the maritime history of the port.
The pubs were the crew drank, the houses where they lived. The hotels of the rich and famous passengers. The offices where the lists of those that died where posted on the railings outside. Visit the pub and home address of James McGrady, a first-class steward who was the inspiration for Leonardo Di Caprio’s character Jack Dawson in the film.
The city is home to numerous memorials to those that died that fateful day. The Crew memorial sits in the ruins of Holyrood church, a 14th century church that was destroyed during an air raid in World War 2. The ruins of the church now serve as a memorial to the seamen of the Merchant Navy. There are many others, The Engineer officers, Musicians being the most well known.
Our tour can start and finish in the old maritime part of the city or be extended to encompass a visit to the SeaCity museum and their Titanic exhibition or perhaps some of the memorials?
