It also hosts the only surviving White Star Line vessel in the world SS Nomadic, and the original dry dock in which Titanic was fitted out is now a fascinating visitor attraction and illustration of the world class engineering that made Belfast the greatest ship yard in the world at the beginning of the twentieth century.
