Titanic Belfast is a fantastic tourist attraction at the heart of the Titanic Quarter in Belfast. Here, you will learn about the Linen industry at Belfast in the 19th/20th century, but the main focus of the museum is the ship building at Harland and Wolff and of course, the infamous Titanic.

There is disabled parking bays available in the underground car park, which is situated on both -1 and -2 floors, which takes you up to the main Gallery and Ticket floor.

Upon entering the building, all the doors are opened and spacious, with plenty of floor space to maneuver around in a wheelchair, however with lots of children running around the place, extra care is needed.

There are plenty of ticket outlets; so queuing time does not take long. I must stress though, you would be better purchasing your tickets online first, as there could be a 2-hour waiting time after getting your tickets. However, if you arrive before 10am or after 4pm, the waiting time is drastically reduced.

For the mobility restricted, there are manual wheelchairs and electronic scooters available at reception for people to wish to use them, as the tour takes on average 1 hr. 20mins, but took me 2 hrs. 30mins.

They also have an electronic guide for the guide and hard of hearing, which speaks to visitors, telling them what all is in the museum, as they walk through and a guidebook for those who would prefer to read.

The two cafes Bistro 401 and Gallery Café are both spacious, however the counter is high for those low down in wheelchairs or of restrictive height. The staff is good in both and offer assistant where and when required.

Throughout Titanic Belfast, there are rest spots for people to sit and relax, for those who might find the walk the whole way through too tiring. These are at regular intervals, so you will never have to go too far before resting.

There are plenty of disabilities toilets, with good space in them on all the floors.

There is a ride in the middle of the museum, in which you sit in a carriage and get taken around the bowels of the Titanic during its ship building stage. Manual wheelchairs have their own section on one of these carriages, but unfortunately it is not possible to take an electric wheelchair. They do provide you with either assistance onto a regular carriage, or with a manual wheelchair if needed.

One of the other features that Titanic Belfast has, which is not opened for public tours, is event hosting in The Bridge and Titanic Suite, where an exact replica of the famous Titanic stairway is. 

These are all fully accessible by wheelchairs and with disabled toilets on the Titanic Suite floor, which is easily accessible to by The Bridge floor.
