Things to do in Belfast
Game of Thrones tour
Game of Thrones is filmed around Belfast, venture to Winterfell to check out some of the show’s most spectacular settings and, if fancy dress if your thing, there’s a chance to slip into costume for a spot of archery.
Titanic Belfast is the authority on the fateful liner. Once you’ve checked out the exhibitions, and the symbolism of the boat’s structure on the Discovery Tour, pay the Ocean Exploration Centre a visit to come back to the 21st century. Kate and Leo not included.
St George’s Market
St George’s Market is a Belfast institution. Loved by residents and tourists alike, it’s the place to go for lip-smacking goodness from near and far. You’ll also find an array of local craftspeople selling their wares.
Belfast Castle and Cave Hill County Park
Make a beeline for Belfast Castle and Cave Hill Country Park for an unrivalled view of the city. While you’re up there, explore the park and woodland, pop into the visitor centre and see if you can make out Napoleon’s Nose.
Everyone should know about W5. On the one hand, it’s an exciting, interactive science and discovery centre for kids that fuels their imaginations and exercises their brains in fun ways. On the other, it’s a popular space for corporate conferences and events - a handy piece of information for anyone staying at our Belfast business hotels.
Botanic Gardens and Ulster Museum
Wiling away a couple of hours in Belfast’s Botanic Gardens is a blooming lovely thing to do. An important part of the city’s Victorian heritage, it’s also home to the Ulster Museum where you’ll come face-to-face with dinosaurs, mummies and other intriguing objects from the arts, history and natural sciences.
