Overview
Learn about an important part of Belfast’s history by going on a walking tour that explains key events that happened during the Troubles. Get more out of the experience than exploring alone, by hearing a guide’s perspective on the conflict, and how Northern Ireland has progressed on its path to peace. Sights you pass include the Cathedral Quarter, the Lagan River, the City Hall, and much more.
