Things To Do In Belfast

Nestled at the mouth of the River Lagan and home to the Titanic, Belfast is Northern Ireland’s capital and one of the best getaway spots in the UK. It’s the kind of place where you can get your fill of shopping, climb to one of the most phenomenal views of a city you’ll ever see, learn about the complicated and enthralling modern history that made the city what it is, and of course have a cracking night out. Oh, how could we forget, it’s the home of Game of Thrones too!
