The Titanic is London-bound, opening a unique exhibition at the O2 November 5th featuring artefacts recovered from the ship rather than souvenirs from survivors. The show will display more than 300 items from the ill-fated RMS Titanic. The show runs November 5th until May 1, 2011 and is open to the public.
London is never short of cultural programs which is one of the reasons why the city remains one of the most popular European travel destinations year after year. Another addition to the possible culture jaunts in November, this exhibition brings haunting stories to life through real artefacts rescued from the depths of the ocean where the Titanic now lays to rest.
The ill-fated ship struck an iceberg and sank on April 15th, almost 100 years ago in 1912. It was the largest ship in the world at that time and claimed the lives of more than 1500 people on its inaugural journey to New York City. A story now legendary, we are now able to get a real feel for the sheer luxury of the ship at this exhibition which focuses on the human stories told through the artefacts.
From bottles of perfume to delicate china bearing the label of the White Star Line, it’s the first time such a vast amount of objects are on display from the Titanic. Isn’t that reason enough to plan a holiday in London?
