'In the Footsteps of Titanic'. Spend a day in Southampton - on land and sea - exploring the maritime city's connections with the world's most famous ocean liner, the Titanic. Visit SeaCity Museum and explore the permanent Titanic Gallery, where some of the sights and sounds of 1912 Southampton are recreated. Hear how the disaster affected the lives of over 500 Southampton families; see artefacts from the ship and listen to the findings of the British Inquiry into the sinking in the recreated Court Room; take a guided walk with a Southampton Guide through the city's Titanic Quarter, hearing tales of the crew and passengers, and seeing the many Titanic memorials and buildings associated with the liner, before boarding the SS Shieldhall for a cruise along Southampton Water. The Shieldhall is the country's oldest passenger-cargo steamship, with engineering connections to the Titanic. Your cruise will pass down Southampton Water, as the Titanic did on 10 April 1912, with a commentary pointing out the White Star Titanic berth. You are welcome to visit the Engine Room and Boiler Room on Shieldhall and also meet the Captain on the Bridge!.

* (If groups would like to book a Tour Manager to accompany them throughout the day, this can be made available at a cost of £165).

Refreshments: Available at extra cost at SeaCity Museum or on SS Shieldhall

Guided tour of Southampton’s Titanic Quarter lasts 1 1/2 hours (included in price).

SeaCity Museum is open from 10am daily. We would recommend the day commencing with a visit to SeaCity Museum, followed by the Guided Tour of Southampton’s Titanic Quarter, though these can be followed in any order. The day would finish with the SS Shieldhall Cruise.
