Titanic Belfast is offering Northern Ireland residents the chance to visit its award-winning exhibitions for free.

It's part of a move by the centre, recently named World's Leading Tourist Attraction, to say thanks for the support it has had from the public.

The centre which tells the tale of Belfast's most famous ill-fated liner, will open its doors for 'Citizens Day' this Sunday, January 8.

Tickets will be available from the Titanic Belfast website in two separate releases - at 12 noon on Wednesday (Jan 4) and Thursday (Jan 5).

To bag one of the limited "golden tickets", simply make your booking online here using the promo code TBTHANKSNI.

Chief executive of Titanic Belfast, Tim Husbands, said:

“Home is where the heart is for Titanic Belfast. We recognise that the Northern Ireland got behind us in our bid to become ‘King of the World’, from the public, industry partners, well-known personalities, politicians, sports stars and businesses.

"It was because of them and the hard work of our staff that we were voted on par with previous winners such as the Taj Mahal, Las Vegas Strip and the Pyramids of Egypt.

"To say thank you for your support in 2016 and to show our appreciation, we are throwing our doors open for locals on January 8 to encourage those who have or haven’t visited to come down and enjoy the world-class experience on their doorstep.”

The £90/€106 million centre, which opened in 2012, was crowned ‘World’s Leading Tourist Attraction’ at the prestigious World Travel Awards in the Maldives.

Over one million votes were cast in the competition.

The landmark building tells the story of the Titanic, from her conception in Belfast in the early 1900s, through her construction and launch, to her famous maiden voyage and tragic end in 1912.

Over three million people have visited the site since its opening and last year the tender, SS Nomadic was opened next to the site.
