The Venue For London’s Incredible Titanic Exhibition Has Finally Been Revealed
The sinking of the RMS Titanic over 100 years ago has been featured in many a book, documentary and film. However, you’ll have never seen it like this – which is probably why Titanic: The Exhibition tickets are in such high demand that organisers have decided to bring forward the opening date! Originally due to open in February 2022, the exhibition will now arrive in town on December 17, placing the personal stories of those aboard the fateful voyager at the forefront of the display.
The exhibition, which has never before been displayed in the UK, will showcase over 200 original artefacts, as well as moving testimonies from those who survived the sunken ship, using dynamic audio guides and cabin reconstructions to take you back to April 15, 1912.
Not only has the gripping event got an opening date, but its destined location has also been revealed. The waterside Surrey Quays venue, Dock X London, will see its high ceilings and wide spaces transformed into the perfect exhibition space. After a hectic morning of last-minute Christmas shopping at nearby Surrey Quays Shopping Centre, Titanic: The Exhibition will take a slower pace. You can take your time for an afternoon of history and learning, as you stroll through life-size replicas of a humble third-class cabin, and opulent first-class suite. The event, which has been produced by award-winning company, Musealia, will also bring together pages of intimate diary entries, precious jewellery, and clothing belonging to passengers.
With the new December opening date confirmed, tickets for the Christmas holidays are also on sale – just in case you fancied mixing in a little history with your tours of Christmas lights and festive markets. It’s also your chance to be amongst the first to open a window into the past and explore this unforgettable exhibition!
Tickets start at as little as £19.90 for adults and £11.50 for children, and there’s even a ‘first-class’ option, which includes fast-track access on the day, a souvenir photograph and commemorative exhibition booklet. They’re selling fast though, so you’ll need to be quick to get your hands on them…
