What better place to enjoy a festive walk than along the city’s glistening waterfront, day or night? Your first port of call – the Odyssey and Abercorn Marina. There you will find SoundYard, an impressive installation that recreates the sounds of hammering once heard from the shipyards. SoundYard is beautifully lit up this festive season, the sights (and sounds) are not to be missed!
Continue around the harbour, past the Belfast Buoys and the dazzling lights to the Hamilton Dock, home to the SS Nomadic. This ship was the tender to RMS Titanic and the last remaining White Star Line ship in the world! Discover the historic ship’s decks, funnels and gangways elegantly illuminated.
The bright lights at Titanic Belfast are a spectacular sight to behold. The building is illuminated, and the cascading lights are almost as tall as Titanic’s bow! For the perfect picture moment, head to the Titanic Sign – the ultimate backdrop for that all important Instagram shot.
Your final stop on the Harbour Lights trail is the Great Light, one of the largest optics of its kind ever built in the world and is around 130 years old, illuminated for everyone to see at night.
Fancy going a little further? Head round to HMS Caroline and the Thompson Dock and Pump House, the new home of Titanic Distillers, coming this Winter.
So, wrap up warm and discover the magical lights along the Maritime Mile!
Watch the excitement unfold as Father Christmas and his Elves count down to their favourite night of the year at Titanic Belfast Magical Christmas Experience.
Journey through the Enchanted Forest to make a wish by the Magical Wishing Tree, before stepping through the Old Curiosity Shop to enter the Elves’ Workshop!
Visit Mrs Claus in her cosy kitchen to hear Christmas tales, stop by the bustling post office to write and post your Christmas letter and peek into the toy shop where the Elves have been hard at work, before letting your creative juices flow with some arts and crafts!
Finally, wrap up your Magical Christmas Experience by having your name checked off our ‘Naughty or Nice’ list by our Chief Elf – those on the ‘Nice’ list will get to meet Father Christmas!
