This area of East Belfast has been transformed. There are a couple of great coffee shops. Great open space and art work. Easy to get to as it is on the Glider route, G1. Definitely worth stopping here.

There is a large car park for the offices close by - it's located behind the Holywood Arches Library - take a left almost as soon as you turn into the Holywood Road off Newtownards Road
