Best Things to do in Belfast

Groupon's 'Local Stars' awards are about to take place and businesses all over the world will be awarded for being the best in their locality. In the spirit of recognising the best of the best, I asked the bloggers who write for City Guide give their personal recommendations for the best things to do in Belfast. Here's what they say:

Belfast Food Tour

If you’re in Belfast on a Saturday you must do the Belfast Food Tour to learn about and taste the best of what the Belfast food scene has to offer” - Jeff Meredith @ Belfast Times

Co Couture Belfast

The Belfast Food Tour takes place every Saturday between 10.30am-1pm.

Coffee in St Anne's Square

A great spot for people watching and some of the best coffee in town, this is Belfast's version of a European piazza.” - Nic @ Strawberry Blonde Beauty

Shopping in Victoria Square

Rain, hail or shine I can shop here to my heart's content. Like that it caters to every budget and has plenty of restaurants if I get hungry en route (or need time to decide on those shoes)” - Nic @ Strawberry Blonde Beauty
