Get ready to explore more of Belfast’s Maritime Mile

Maritime Mile, an initiative by Maritime Belfast Trust, the charity responsible for preserving Belfast’s maritime and industrial heritage, is inviting you to explore MORE of Belfast’s iconic waterfront this year.

The Explore MORE campaign aims to encourage and motivate locals and visitors to explore more by taking a trip along the Maritime Mile to visit vibrant quaysides and heritage attractions, go for a walk, run, or cycle and enjoy a cocktail or a bite to eat in one of the eateries dotted along the way. All whilst learning about Belfast’s maritime story during the day or evening.

There are so many great things to discover and explore, here is a sample:

  • Step onboard HMS Caroline and explore the sole survivor from the Battle of Jutland. Witness the Battle of Jutland unfold, visit the captain’s quarters, crack codes, launch torpedoes and signal ships, explore the engine room, and see where the crew lived.
  • Discover the newest attraction on the Maritime Mile, Titanic Distillers at the Thompson Dock. Belfast’s first working Distillery in almost 90 years and is also a visitor attraction offering a range of tours, opening on 28th April 2023.
  • Experience some of Northern Ireland’s finest music talent with Sundays on the Maritime Mile throughout May and August.
  • See more, hear more and feel more at the Reimagined Titanic Experience at Titanic Belfast. Discover the new galleries and breath-taking artefacts.
  • Learn all about Belfast’s Maritime Heritage at the ‘Where Belfast Begins’ outdoor exhibition on Queen’s Quay.
  • Join PRONI as they celebrate their 100th year with a yearlong programme of events to enjoy.
  • Clock up to 10,000 heritage steps along the Maritime Mile by walking in the footsteps of former H&W shipyard workers. Take in the sights and the sounds of the stunning waterfront, perfect for walking, running or cycling.
