Belfast, the capital where conflict and destruction once pervaded, has vastly changed in the recent years and has now become the second most visited place on the island. It might be a small city but there are so many attractions to explore that you will not run out of things to do, like visiting the Cathedral Quarter, having fun with the family at Belfast Zoo and shopping at the fantastic Victoria Square Shopping Centre.
With its open top and multi-lingual service, the Belfast City Sightseeing Hop On/Hop Off Bus Tour gives you the opportunity to get a great view of the fantastic city and explore every area. Tour departs from Castle Place and will bring you around key areas including Odyssey Arena, the Titanic Quarter, Belfast City Hall, Great Victoria Street, Botanic Gardens and Ulster Museum, Crumlin Road Gaol and the Cathedral Quarter. You can join the tour from any stop along the route, meaning you can take a stroll at your own pace while you enjoy your favourite attractions.
