A History of Terror Walking Tour

Running daily at 10.30, ‘A History of Terror’ starts at Belfast City Hall where your expert guide will explain how and why the Troubles started and then over two hours and 15 minutes you will visit seven locations in the city centre where some of the most important events of the conflict occurred. The tour allows you to explore and understand the most turbulent period in Belfast's recent past and what it was like to grow up and live here during the Troubles.

Whilst walking through the Cathedral Quarter and finishing on the banks of the River Lagan, the tour will also explain the peace-building process and demonstrate the reconciliation and regeneration which has taken place since the ceasefires in the 1990s.

The tour is unbiased, objective and historically accurate. It is suitable for all visitors to Belfast, regardless of how much or little you already know of our troubled past.

Best of Belfast Walking Tour

New for 2021, this tour is the perfect 2 hour introduction to the city of Belfast; its beautiful architecture, stunning street art, unique history and the amazing stories of its citizens from across the centuries.

The tour starts at 10.00 each day and is an amazing journey through the city’s history and a celebration of its resilience. Everyone has heard of the Titanic and the Troubles, and you will of course hear about these on the tour, but there is so much more to discover.

The entire walk is less than 2 miles and with 14 stops on the tour it promises to be an experience which broadens your horizons, opens your mind and if you take note of the guide’s recommendations food and drink, will satisfy your body afterwards too!
