Belfast was voted as a top destination to visit in 2018, full of quirky quarters, hidden gems and a trove of historical treasures. In recent decades, the city has learnt to embrace rather than fight its character as a diverse, cultural hub. Belfast today offers a rich variety of things to do, from live music to world-class theatre, and local attractions to touring exhibitions.
The birthplace of Titanic; Belfast’s museum dedicated to the infamous voyager and local maritime heritage is great for guided city tours and interactive experiences. Or you may prefer to visit its range of venues devoted to the arts, like the Grand Opera House or Lyric Theatre. If you’re more ‘go big or go home’ at the weekend, get your dose of Northern Irish nightlife with upcoming club nights, concerts and gigs.
