Enjoy a walk through the historic centre of Belfast with this guided tour that will reveal all the hidden gems of the Northern Irish capital.
Belfast Free Walking Tour
We'll begin our tour in front of Belfast City Hall, one of the city's most iconic buildings. Construction on this Edwardian-style civic building began at the end of the 19th century when Queen Victoria awarded Belfast "city status".
The next stop on our free tour is the Albert Memorial Clock. This clock tower will inevitably remind us of London's Big Ben, although as we look around we'll notice the differences between the two. After learning about the history of this monument we'll head to Belfast Harbour, located at the mouth of the River Lagan - home to the old shipyards where one of the most famous transatlantic ships in the history of sailing was built: the RMS Titanic.
Following this, we'll visit the Big Fish sculpture, created by local artist John Kindness. The sculpture hides many meanings which we'll tell you all about. After that, the last part of the tour will be spent discovering the St Anne's Cathedral area. This is a very special cathedral, as it represents a symbol of peace for both Catholics and Protestants.
The free tour will then end at our original starting point.
