The story of the Titanic is one that still captures people's imaginations more than a century after it sank in the North Atlantic Ocean.

It was the biggest passenger liner in the world when it was built in 1912. People said it was 'unsinkable' but they were wrong.

Tragically, the Titanic struck an iceberg while it was crossing the Atlantic Ocean and started to sink. Famously, a string quartet continued to play as the ship was going down.

Most of the people on board died but some were able to escape in lifeboats.
