Alexandra Dock

At the furthest point of the Maritime Mile, is the Alexandra Dock. As Harland & Wolff began to design larger ships, they needed larger docks to house them. The Alexandra Dock was built between 1885-89, just over 800 feet long and 80 feet wide, and was the largest dry dock in the world at the time. It was also designed to be separated into 3 sections, using caissons to have a combination of dry and flooded dock space. The caissons for the dock were built by another local shipbuilder, Workman Clark, and given the yard numbers 53 and 54. The Dock was named for the Princess of Wales, Princess Alexandra, who cut the first sod. The Alexandra Dock is now permanently flooded and home to HMS Caroline.

Clarendon Dock

The oldest remaining docks in Belfast Harbour are the Clarendon dry docks, built in the 1800s, by Belfast’s first commercial shipbuilder, William Ritchie. He originally set his shipyard up at the Old Lime Kiln Dock (where Corporation St is now) but Ritchie needed a dry dock so Belfast Harbour agreed to build a dock which Ritchie built himself, completing it in 1800. Known as Ritchie’s Dock for years, it was later renamed Clarendon Dock No 1. The second Clarendon Dock was completed in 1826. The Victorian dry docks are no longer used but remain an important link to Belfast’s maritime past.

Custom House

Drawing Offices

The former Harland & Wolff Headquarter Building and Drawing Offices dates from 1886 and was the centre of H&W activities for more than a century. It was in this building where men created, and designed thousands of ships including the White Star Olympic Class Liners – Olympic, Titanic and Britannic and naval warships such as HMS Belfast. The building was vacated by H&W in 1989, and restoration work began in 2016 to turn the derelict building into Titanic Hotel Belfast, which opened in September 2017. Many of the heritage features have been retained and restored, and the two Drawing Offices are stunning reminders of the grandeur of Harland & Wolff’s passenger liners.

Thompson Dock

At the very end of the Maritime Mile is the Thompson Dock. The huge dry dock was built specifically to house the Olympic Class liners that Harland & Wolff had designed. It was completed in 1911 and named after the chairman of the Belfast Harbour Commission, Robert Thompson. RMS Olympic was the first ship to glide into the Thompson Dock. The Olympic class liners just fitted the Dock, which is 850 foot long and 100 foot wide. The dock was used until 2002, and some restoration work was carried out in 2010 allowed it to be opened to the public for guided tours.
