  grand staircase

 

The grand staircase refers to the large ornate staircase located in the first-class section, there are in fact two grand staircases, the forward staircase descended five levels down from the Boat Deck to the F-deck, however after E-deck the ornate design is not continued and it continues into F-deck as an ordinary staircase.

The staircase featured large glass domes, oak panelling and detailed carvings, paintings, bronze cherubs and a clock surrounded by an intricate oak carving.

The aft staircase is similar in design but with a less ornate clock. 

 

 

 

On the wreck of the titanic the staircase has long gone ,the ornate panels have been eaten away and the glass dome is gone leaving a gaping hole, however with the staircase now gone from the wreck the large hole does provide easy access for exploring submersibles to get into the ship. 

A full-scale re-creation of the Grand Staircase can be found by visiting the titanic exhibition at the Luxor hotel in Las Vegas USA, You can also see the Grand Staircase at the newly opened Titanic attraction in Belfast, northern Ireland, however the latter can only be seen if you are attending an event in the conference centre as it is not part of the museum tour.
