Activities - Annual Outing


The ICOMOS Ireland EYCH2018 Study Tour of the Titanic Quarter, Belfast was expertly led by Fred Hamond. The tour commenced with a visit to Queens Island followed by an insightful tour of the Titanic Hotel Belfast (former Harland and Wolff Drawing Office / Headquarters) led by Kerry Sweeney, CEO, Titanic Belfast Foundation. Led by Fred, the tour continued through to Hamilton Dock and onto the SS Nomadic, a vessel with a very interesting life story. We were then taken on a guided tour around the ship courtesy of Titanic Foundation. We continued our tour in the Titanic Quarter where Fred informed our group of the history of the Titanic Slipways, Steam Cranes, the Great Light, Alexandra Dock, Thompson Dock, the Pump House and a guided tour aboard the HMS Caroline. The Wee Tram returned our group to the Titanic Hotel from where we made our way to Primrose and Edward Wilsons apartment for light refreshments.

Many thanks to all who made the Annual Outing a great success, in particular to Fred Hammond, Claire Foley, Dawson Stelfox, Primrose and Edward Wilson, Kerry Sweeney (Titanic Foundation) and the tour guides on board the SS Nomadic and HMS Caroline.
