The Belfast Telegraph is reporting that Titanic Belfast has become the most visited tourist attractions with over 650,000 people visiting in last nine months. So many people wanted to see the Titanic visitor experience in December that staff had to put up “sold out” signs. 33,000 visited in December and that figure does not include the Victorian Father Christmas experience. Very impressive numbers indeed. Tim Husbands, Titanic Belfast chief executive said the numbers exceeded all expectations and proved Titanic was a year round attraction.
“This was our first Christmas and also the first time we hosted a Christmas experience at Titanic Belfast, and almost 10,000 people visited our Victorian Christmas street scene to meet a traditional Father Christmas, and be transported back in time to a magical Christmas period,” Mr Husbands said.
