Belfast is much more than the Troubles
Discover the great Art, Architecture, Legends and Pubs on offer.
We meet in front of Belfast’s City Hall, the most iconic building in the city and there you’ll discover the history of the city including the plantation of Ulster and Partition of Ireland.
From there we visit some of the best architecture in Belfast from St Anne’s Cathedral to St Georges Market.
In the Cathedral Quarter I’ll show you some of the best Street Art and Sculpture in the city and I’ll tell you the story behind the standout pieces. You’ll also discover the best bars, cafe’s, restaurants and galleries in Belfast including recommendations from me. Along the way, we stop for an excellent coffee in one of the city’s trendiest coffee bars before we move along to discover more points of interest including Belfast’s connection to TV shows – Game of Thrones, Line of Duty and The Fall.
Next we take the footbridge over the river Lagan before returning to the city centre to discover one of our oldest bars where we stop for a glass of local beer or Guinness (non alcoholic alternatives will be available). We’ll end our tour back at the city hall.
