For those who are mildly obsessed with Titanic and its history, a themed hotel has just opened on the site where the original liner was designed and built.

The hotel has kept many of the industrial features from the original warehouse building, adding subtle nods to the Titanic’s original, luxurious decor.

© Provided by Huffington Post As champions for the preservation of Belfast’s maritime heritage, it has been a privilege for Titanic Foundation to work on this incomparable restoration project, made possible with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund and private investment from Harcourt Developments.
