SS Nomadic Tours

SS Nomadic
Now permanently berthed at Belfast’s Hamilton dry dock, the SS Nomadic is the last surviving vessel from the White Star Line, the once-prominent shipping line behind the ill-fated RMS Titanic. Built in the Harland and Wolff shipyards, the SS Nomadic was the tender to the Titanic, ferrying passengers to the luxury cruise liner.
 
The Basics
The SS Nomadic now functions as a museum, with exhibits spread across four decks. Visitors can learn about its construction and its role in the Titanic story, as well as admire restored interiors and find out about its wartime service and stint as a Parisian restaurant-nightclub. Self-guided and guided tours are available. Tickets for the neighboring Titanic Belfast Experience include free admission to the SS Nomadic. Buy tickets in advance to skip the line.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The SS Nomadic is a must for anyone interested in the Titanic and Belfast’s maritime history.
  • Flat shoes are recommended, as there are uneven surfaces at the dock and on the ship.
  • Some parts of the SS Nomadic are wheelchair-accessible, but other parts, such as the flying bridge deck and crew space, are not.
 
How to Get There
The SS Nomadic sits in Hamilton dry dock, right beside Titanic Belfast, in Belfast’s Titanic Quarter. Walk here from Belfast city center in about 20 minutes, or take the train to the Titanic Quarter station, which is 10–15-minutes’ walk away. Several Metro bus routes, including the 26, 26a, and 26c stop nearby.
 
When to Get There
The SS Nomadic is usually busiest between June and August, especially on weekend afternoons. If you want to avoid the biggest crowds, come midweek during spring or autumn when the Titanic Quarter sees less foot traffic.
 
History of the SS Nomadic
The SS Nomadic stayed afloat for decades after the sinking of the Titanic. The ship continued to work as a tender for White Star’s luxury cruisers, and was used in both world wars before finally ending up as a floating party boat on the River Seine in Paris. Having been purchased by the Northern Irish government in 2002, the SS Nomadic was restored and retired to the dry dock in Belfast where it now stands.
