This part of Belfast was always on the news in 70:80's due to the troubles. It's great to be able to walk down looking at murals and watch the parades

Again we visited as part of the city bus tour and was saddened by how close together the 'warring' parties are together whilst at the same time are a million miles apart. people all round the city take the time to give you a wave. Very friendly people.

It was interesting to travel down Shankill Road and see the supposed normality of life while thinking about the gate and history that separates the people of Falls and Shankill Roads. Worth visiting from a historical point.

If you go to Belfast, you must visit Shankill Road. The paints explain well the history of the city. Is also a good place to enjoy a beer in one the taverns.

If you want to see the murals you will have to head to this road. There are plenty of them to see and the walk is a steady and easy one. The walls can be accessed by the City Sightseeing bus and are very close to the peace wall and the jail.

Have not been here since the mid 90's, the change is amazing, atmosphere was friendly, and not threatening, so much better.

Worth visiting this area to understand the history of our time - it brings to life all the news stories we read and the tv reports we watched in the 70's and 80's

I walked up the length of Shankill road on a sunny Sunday morning, not too much going on, but good opportunity to see some of the famous murals on this side of the peace line, very interesting place and loads of reading on the murals too, all as expected rather political considering the history of the place. My favourite place... More
