Tunbridge Wells: Royal Victoria Place shopping centre to house Titanic exhibition

A world class collection of photos and artefacts from the world's most famous ship will be on display at Royal Victoria Place shopping centre this summer.

The Titanic in Photographs exhibition will run between Saturday, July 23, and Sunday, August 21.

This will be a first for the county, before the exhibition embarks on a worldwide tour, including installations in South America and the United States.

Free to the public, the installation includes almost 100 large-scale photographs to guide the visitor through the story of the Titanic.

Alongside the images there will be a number of display cabinets, containing more than 100 genuine artefacts from Titanic and her twin sister ship, Olympic.

Based on the book of the same name, this installation will transport shoppers back to 1912, guiding them through the life of the ship from conception to demise.

Marc Burchett, marketing manager at Royal Victoria Place, said: "I am extremely proud that we will be bringing this unique exhibition to Tunbridge Wells and Kent this summer.

"It will certainly provide visitors with something different to enjoy and has great appeal to all ages. I think the story of the Titanic has captivated us all, and this exhibition will certainly not disappoint."

Artefacts in the exhibition include stationary from the reading and writing room and a railway ticket purchased on board by a third-class passenger, who never made this onward journey.

This exhibition is free for the public from Saturday, July 23 until Sunday, August 21.
