Pass By: Experience Belfast, 24 Rosemary Street Outside the front gates of Belfast City Hall, Belfast BT1 1QD Northern Ireland
We meet on the pavement outside Belfast City Hall, the main landmark in the city. After introductions, the tour begins with a brief history of Belfast and a guide to our humour. We make a quick visit to the City Hall before setting out through the City Centre, wandering past scenes of our recent troubled past before meandering through our famous Entries. They like much else in the city have secrets hidden in plain sight. In Belfast, it's often what you don't see or what's hidden below the surface that's most illuminating
We move down towards the River Lagan, passing the Statue of Harmony on the way and allowing time for photo opportunities, something we do on the whole walk. We follow the river back to the Big Fish before moving back towards the city centre again. We pass the Albert Clock and move through the Cathedral Quarter which has some wonderful murals. Here you can learn how punk rock brought people together and find the link between it and President Clinton. After that we cut through an entry to visit the sites of Belfast’s radical, humane past on it’s oldest street. We look at Belfast's involvement or lack of it in the slave trade. The tour concludes with a visit to the First Presbyterian Church a hidden gem, a building that sits at the centre of Irish history, architecturally and socially significant, it shines a light on a forgotten past and illuminates a way towards a better future.
