The 104th anniversary of the launch of the Titanic and sister ship SS Nomadic has been marked by a new visitor pass for tourist attraction, Titanic Belfast.

A new White Star Premium Pass was unveiled to mark the milestone anniversary (May 31 1911) when the Titanic was launched and the Olympic, and the tender ships, Nomadic and Traffic left Belfast, drawing a massive crowd of over 100,000 people to the banks of the Lagan.

The pass offers three tickets for one price. Visitors can now experience the world’s largest Titanic visitor experience together with the SS Nomadic, an authentic piece of Belfast’s industrial heritage, as well as the award-winning Discovery Tour.

Chief executive of Titanic Belfast, Tim Husbands MBE, said: “Launch day on May 31 1911 was a proud day for Belfast – with over 100,000 spectators, and journalists travelling from London and America to report on the launch of the Titanic and watch as the Olympic and the tender ships, Nomadic and Traffic left the city.

“We are pleased to be able to reunite the stories of the two ships again after 104 years with our White Star Premium Pass.”

The pass, which also includes a personalised souvenir photograph or an activity pack for kids can be bought from Titanic Belfast by phone on 028 9076 6399 or from www.titanicbelfast.com. Tickets cost £25 per adult, £20 per senior/student and £15 per child.
