Titanic Belfast and SS Nomadic have unveiled the ticket that Belfast's visitors have been asking for - a pass to both attractions.

The White Star Premium Pass - priced at £25 per adult, £20 per senior/student and £15 per child - has been unveiled 104 years after Titanic’s initial launch.

The pass offers the "ultimate Titanic experience", with three tickets for one price. Visitors can now see 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.

Visitors had previously complained about having to buy separate tickets for the historic vessel, and then fork out for the neighbouring Titanic Belfast attraction.

Chief Executive Tim Husbands MBE said: “Launch day on 31st May 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.”

“Using the ultimate Titanic experience ticket, visitors can now not only enjoy the delights of Titanic Belfast but the SS Nomadic, the last remaining White Star Line vessel, as well as the award-winning Discovery Tour, which highlights the famous barrel-vaulted Harland & Wolff Drawing Offices, the slipways and the building’s iconic structure for one price.”

Titanic Belfast was crowned Outstanding Visitor Experience at the Northern Ireland Tourism Awards - and  beat off stiff competition to be named Europe’s best visitor attraction for groups.

Since opening in March 2012, it has welcomed 2.1 million visitors from over 145 countries.

Titanic Belfast and the SS Nomadic are putting together a bumper entertainment schedule to celebrate on Sunday, which includes free activities for all the family.
