Located at the Queen’s Yard more colloquially known as the Main Yard, are the twin slipways of the Titanic and Olympic White Star passenger liners.

Initiated by Titanic Quarter Ltd,Titanic Quarter Ltd’s the consultations with the Environment & Heritage Service led to the statutory scheduling of both slipways and the adjacent waterways in the Victoria Channel into which the White Star liners were launched. The slipways with the city dominant Arrol Gantry cranes remained in use until the 1960’s.
