This walk will give you a really good understanding of Belfast in just a few hours; from the startling Titanic Belfast with its striking modern architecture to the weighty tradition of the City Hall, you will find a city that has rediscovered its economic prosperity and sense of wellbeing.

Everywhere you walk you will find improvements to the fabric of the city, but you will also see signs of the immense wealth that the city enjoyed during the nineteenth century when it enjoyed world pre-eminence in the linen industry and in shipbuilding. Most famously of all, the Titanic was of course constructed here, in the Harland and Woolf shipyards which at one time employed 35,000 workers. Their two huge cranes still dominate the skyline and are now listed monuments.
