Where was the Titanic built?

titanic was built in BelfastThe Titanic was built in Belfast, Northern Ireland at the Harland & Wolff shipyard.

White Star Line where to build 3 great liners (Olympic, Titanic and Briannic) at the shipyard that would secure transatlantic trade for the company.

In stark contrast to the ship they were building, many of Titanic’s workers lived in homes with only basic facilities. While Titanic used electricity to power everything from lights to lifts, shipyard men lit their kitchen houses by candlelight and later with town gas. 

Titanic was ready for her launch in late May of 1911.
