Belfast is Northern Ireland’s capital. It was the birthplace of the RMS Titanic, which famously struck an iceberg and sunk in 1912. This legacy is recalled in the renovated dockyards' Titanic Quarter, which includes the Titanic Belfast, an aluminium-clad museum reminiscent of a ship’s hull, as well as shipbuilder Harland & Wolff’s Drawing Offices and the Titanic Slipways, which now host open-air concerts.
City Centre: At the heart of the city centre is Belfast City Hall. Opened in 1906, it hosts a visitor exhibition that tracks
the City’s history, offers guided tours of the Council Chambers and is home to the Titanic Memorial Garden.
After exploring the shops and stores on Donegall Place and Royal Avenue, or the Victorian St George’s Market, hunt out the many cool cafes, cosy pubs and tasty restaurants hidden in the entries, streets and avenues.
Cathedral Quarter: This historic trading quarter is a maze of cobblestoned streets and warehouses that are now home to trendy bars, clubs and restaurants. Visitor attractions include the Metropolitan Arts Centre (the MAC), St Anne’s Cathedral, the Oh Yeah Music Centre and the Discover Ulster Scots Centre. Full of colourful street art, the area of town is a buzz with music, entertainment and fun at night.
Linen Quarter: The area behind Belfast City Hall, where the White Linen Hall once stood, visitors can enjoy the architecture of old linen mills which now house a mix of offices, chic bars and award-winning restaurants - perfectly placed to enjoy pre-theatre dinner and drinks before heading to the Grand Opera House.
