Welcome to the Belfast Titanic Society
In recent years the story of Titanic in Belfast was somewhat over looked so in 1992 the BELFAST TITANIC SOCIETY was formed to preserve and research the story of Titanic and the other White Star Line ships built in Belfast. In 1996 the Society hosted the first world-wide Titanic convention to be held in Ireland – called ‘Titanic@home’, the event was instrumental in placing Belfast at the centre of the Titanic story. Our website was substantially redesigned in late 2012 with new links to the Society’s Facebook, Twitter and Flickr accounts. We are delighted that potential new members can now join, and existing members can renew, using an online process on our membership page. Our web site contains some unique resources, including some original research, so feel free to explore the story of Titanic in Belfast as you move through our pages.
