SS Nomadic in Belfast

All aboard! Commonly known as the Titanic’s little sister, and around a quarter of her size, the SS Nomadic was built at the same time as the Titanic, in the same place, by the same people. She was used to transporting passengers from the shallow dockside to the Titanic, which was moored in deeper water offshore. However, as the final remaining White Star Line Ship in the world, that’s only the start of her amazing hundred-year history!

After active service in both World Wars, the SS Nomadic travelled the world in style, before being retired in 1968, where she spent years in a Paris restaurant and nightclub! Some of her most famous passengers include ‘The Unsinkable Molly Brown, Marie Curie, Charlie Chaplin and, more recently, James Cameron.

Restored to her original 1911 glory, traverse four decks packed with history and experience for yourself what it was like on board a luxury White Star Liner, like the Titanic. The story of the Nomadic is told through interactive elements and puzzles, to keep all ages engaged. Marvel at the contrast between areas designated for different classes, visit the crew quarters or admire the views on deck. You can even dress up in clothes from the day!

Where can I find the ship?

The SS Nomadic can be found right in the centre of Titanic Quarter, beside the Harland & Wolff shipyard where it was built. It sits proudly in front of Titanic Belfast.

Tickets must be booked online in advance. Tickets include not just admission to the SS Nomadic, but also to the nearby Titanic Experience. Allow 30 minutes to an hour to fully appreciate the SS Nomadic.
