Belfast had the largest shipyard in the world. William Pirrie was in charge and Bruce Ismay was the chairman of the White Star Line. One day they came
together shaking hands on the deal to build the three largest cruise ships in the world, Olympic, Titanic and Britanic. These two men are at the gates to
welcome you to Harland and Wolf’s shipyard.
The Titanic was fitted out with luxurious furniture created by talented craftsmen.The grand staircase has been recreated in the banqueting suite of
Titanic Belfast. The table which is now in Belfast Harbour Commissioners was finished too late for the maiden voyage. There was specially designed crockery and cutlery too.
