THE TITANIC BELFAST
Located beside the Titanic Slipways, the Harland & Wolff Drawing Offices and Hamilton Graving Dock – the very place where the Titanic was designed, built and launched, Titanic Belfast tells the story of the Titanic from her conception, through her construction and launch, to her maiden voyage and subsequent place in history.
From the historic slipways to the last remaining White Star Line vessel - SS Nomadic, it's unmissable and unforgettable, just like the Titanic herself.
ST GEORGE'S MARKET
Built between 1890 and 1896, the market has won local and national titles and awards for its fresh, local produce and great atmosphere.
It was named the UK's Best Large Indoor Market 2019 by the NABMA Great British Market Awards. St George's Market is open Friday to Sunday, where you can find live music and an electric atmosphere.
Visit for the Friday variety market, the Saturday city food and craft market or the Sunday craft and antiques market.
The Botanic Gardens were established in 1828 by the Belfast Botanic and Horticultural Society, in response to public interest in horticulture and botany.
Originally known as the Belfast Botanic Garden, the site contained an impressive collection of trees and plants from the southern hemisphere.
Today, the park is popular with residents, students and visitors and is an important venue for concerts, festivals and other events.
This historic trading quarter is a maze of cobblestoned streets and warehouses that are now home to trendy bars, beer gardens, clubs and restaurants.
Visitor attractions include the Metropolitan Arts Centre (the MAC), St Anne’s Cathedral, the NI War Memorial, the Oh Yeah Music Centre and the Discover Ulster Scots Centre.
Visit the vibrant, creative soul of Belfast full of colourful street art, buzzing music, and fun all night.
Flanked by the wild Atlantic Ocean and a landscape of dramatic cliffs, for centuries the Giant’s Causeway has captured the imagination of all who see it.
