Set in the opulent surroundings of the Titanic Suite, afternoon tea at Titanic Belfast is an experience not to be missed.
Though you can see many of the ship’s artefacts in the visitor attraction, the suite is the only place you can see a stunning replica of the Grand Staircase; a real feature on board RMS Titanic that was recreated for a few iconic scenes in the 1997 film.
After taking in the surroundings, enjoy a delicious afternoon tea delivered with first-class service. Choose from a sumptuous seasonal menu featuring a selection of finger sandwiches, classic scones with fresh cream, mouth-watering macaroons and sweet treats, as well as tasty savoury bites.
And no afternoon tea would be complete without the perfect pot of tea to go with it. Titanic Belfast serves locally blended Thompson’s loose leaf tea served in replica White Star Line crockery which was used on board Titanic and other White Star Line vessels. Add a glass of prosecco, champagne or a cocktail for an extra taste of luxury.
Children can also choose from a special Afternoon Tea menu for those aged 2-11.
Combine your afternoon tea with the full Titanic Experience. Take a self-guided tour of the nine interactive galleries to uncover the story of Titanic, from her conception in Belfast in the early 1900s to her maiden voyage and subsequent place in history.
Titanic Discovery Tour
The one-hour Discovery Tour includes a guided walk around Titanic Belfast and Titanic Slipways. Listen to stories about passengers, stand where the ship once overlooked the city before setting sail and learn about the impressive architecture of the Titanic Belfast building.
Walk the decks of Titanic’s tender ship and the last remaining White Star Line vessel, SS Nomadic. Used to ferry passengers to Titanic from Cherbourg, the ship is now back home in Belfast where she was designed and built.
Behind Titanic Belfast are the slipways where Titanic and her sister ship Olympic stood over 100 years ago. Follow the lighting outlining the shape of the enormous vessels and explore the life size replica of Titanic’s promenade deck, inlaid in white stone.
Just outside the Titanic Belfast building is Hickson’s Point, a cosy bar serving local food and drinks. Named after Robert Hickson, who sold a shipyard that paved the way for Titanic shipbuilders Harland and Wolff, the bar has an authentic feel and interesting heritage décor.
