Presently in use on a ship refurb, not often you get to see them so close together. Up close they are more impressive and yet can be seen from a distance if a walk is not for you.

You can’t miss these two dominating the Belfast skyline. Only built in the sixties yo ie feel like that have been there forever. Such an iconic site.

These cranes are truly enormous and sound proudly against the city skyline. They seem to be evident at every turn and I guess that's proof of how Belfast and ship building grew together over the years.

Dominating the skyline of Belfast, these majestic towers are an integral part of the cityscape as the Eiffel Tower in Paris or Berlin’s Fernsehturm. Looming large over the city for over 40 years, they can best be viewed up close and personal in the Titanic quarter, a short walk from the museum. The nearest railway station is Titanic Quarter, with trains every 30 mins. Worth a visit to see a living part of the city's heritage.

Iconic landmarks of Belfast, one of the largest cranes in the world, though relatively recent, built in 1969 and 1974 you can't get a good view of Belfast without them being included

It’s an important part of the city’s industrial heritage and they are an impressive sight. Visible from many parts of the city they are probably best seen from the Titanic Quarter.

These are just cranes however they are clearly a major part of Belfast’s history and can be seen from the Titanic area of Belfast! Well worth seeing just to see the colossal size of them!
