How To Get To Titanic Belfast
When we arrived Belfast it was raining, so the best way for us is to just take a taxi. It is not easy to grab a taxi in Belfast so, either you ask your hotel to call one for you or carry with you the taxi number in your wallet
or you can download their free app.
Belfast Taxi Service Phone Numbers:
Make sure to carry these numbers, they usually come within 5-10 minutes, just call any of these number five minutes before leaving the site. Very reliable.
Normally, in the hotel or any tourist spots, they also provide a phone where you can use for free to simply call a taxi.
How Long You Needed To Do This Tour
Time to spend is purely up to your own personal choice.
You can explore the Titanic Belfast Museum for 1-2 hours or 2-3 hours depends on how fast or slow your pace in absorbing the information inside the museum.
There is one area inside the museum where you need to take a ride, so this will be depending on how long you will wait at the queue. If I can recall it took us about 15 minutes waiting and the ride is about the 10-15 minutes long.
