Maritime Belfast Trust

Maritime Belfast Trust preserves and promotes Belfast’s authentic maritime heritage for the enjoyment of current and future generations, and in doing so contributes to the successful social and economic development of the city. Maritime Belfast are the owners and guardians of Titanic Belfast, and manages the operator contract for the building.


Our key successes to date:

  • Titanic Belfast, completed in 2012, has had over 8 million visitors from 145 countries, and contributed £430 million to the local economy.
  • SS Nomadic, the largest RMS Titanic artefact in the world, has had more than 1 million visitors since restoration work was completed in 2013.
  • The restoration of the H&W Drawing Offices has transformed the magnificent building into one of Northern Ireland’s premier hotels.
  • The Great Light, one of the largest lighthouse optics ever constructed, now illuminates the Titanic Walkway.
  • The Maritime Mile, an exciting Blueway for the city, represents one navigational mile of water and 10 kilometres of accessible, connected waterfront.

With each project we have championed the waterfront as a vibrant destination, developing a greater understanding of the importance of Belfast’s maritime heritage to the city and its visitors. Belfast is a city with a long maritime history, and we want to help deliver, protect and promote Belfast’s magnificent maritime heritage.
