Belfast is a city of industry and elegance that boasts a rich and varied past. This panoramic tour of the city will introduce you to the many features of Northern Ireland’s largest city — from the majestic City Hall to the political wall murals. Enjoy a guided drive past sights such as the Grand Opera House and the Albert Memorial before passing Queen’s University and the Botanic Gardens. You will then drive past Belfast City Hall. The Renaissance-style building has a whispering gallery, and a mural by John Luke sits in the main landing — it is a romanticized portrayal of the great old industries of Belfast: rope making, linen and shipbuilding. There is also the marble figure of “Thane,” sculpted by Sir Thomas Brock and commemorating the sinking of the RMS Titanic in 1912, on a granite pedestal. Your next stop is the Titanic Experience, Belfast’s most popular tourist attraction. Titanic Belfast® is located right beside the historic site of this world-famous ship’s construction. Housed in an iconic 6-floor building, this state-of-the-art visitor experience tells the story of Titanic from her conception in Belfast in the early 1900s and her construction to her famous maiden voyage and tragic end. Watch the launch from the slipways and explore the extravagant luxury and superb craftsmanship of Titanic’s interiors. You will learn the stories of the passengers, the crew and the heroes of the day. Relive the drama of the tragic end to Titanic’s only voyage, and visit the wreck at her resting place on the floor of the North Atlantic. Afterward, you’ll have a short amount of free time to enjoy breathtaking views where the Titanic was launched, or to relax in one of the superb restaurants. If you’d like a souvenir, there are plenty to choose from in the Titanic Store before rejoining your motor coach for your return journey back to the ship.
