A huge variety of attractions in Belfast:
Northern Ireland’s capital city is a magical location with surprises and amazing activities for the whole family. It is a little known fact that it was here where the Titanic was constructed. The RMS Titanic, built in Belfast’s Harland and Wolff shipyard, is now one of Northern Ireland’s leading attractions. The remarkable re-development of the dock opened in 2012 and offers visitors a unique and immersive experience of life on-board the ill-fated vessel.
Just a 15-minute drive from the Titanic dock, within the boundaries of Cavehill Country Park, is Belfast Castle. This impressive estate, positioned 400 feet above sea level, provides visitors with stunning views over the whole city. To add to this, Belfast Zoo is just a stone’s throw away so there really is something to please everyone!
Searching for adventure in Colin Glen Forest Park:
For adventure and excitement in Belfast, look no further than Colin Glen Forest Park, south of the city and only a 20-minute drive from our city centre branch. The park itself consists of 200 acres of spectacular woodland, where you can test your nerve with Northern Ireland’s longest zip line, various high ropes courses, with an impressive mountain biking trail nearby. If heights and mountain bikes are not your thing, the Gruffalo-themed woodland trail is equally popular among the park’s visitors.
Plan a trip to Derry Londonderry, via Giant’s Causeway:
If you’re looking to venture out of Belfast and take in more of Northern Ireland’s green landscapes, then take a day trip to Derry Londonderry. A popular route to take is via Giant’s Causeway as it’s just over an hour’s drive from Belfast. This ancient and mysterious phenomenon attracts visitors the world over owing to its interlocking hexagonal-shaped columns. From here, it’s roughly an hour’s drive onto Derry Londonderry where the Peace Bridge, the Derry Guildhall and the Derry Walls are among the most popular attractions within a city of great historical and political significance.
Northern Ireland, and Belfast in particular, contains some truly beautiful driving routes, however, it is vital you take note of these important details before setting off.
- Firstly, and perhaps the most important thing to remember if you are visiting from outside the UK, you’re required to drive on the left hand side of the road in Northern Ireland.
- There are a variety of road types in and around Belfast. Generally, the motorways and dual carriageways are in good condition. In Northern Ireland, an ‘M’ indicates the road is a motorway, while ‘A’ and ‘B’ signs indicate primary and secondary roads.
- The A55 loops around the city while the M1 & M2 provide the main routes into Belfast. Currently, there are no tolls on the motorways in Northern Ireland.
- Take caution when taking the back routes containing windy country lanes. Be aware of farmers using these backroads to relocate livestock, so approach any tight bends with added caution.
- Road signs in Northern Ireland are in miles per hour and therefore align with the rest of the United Kingdom.
- Consumption of alcohol while driving is prohibited. Seat belts must be worn at all times while all drivers must carry valid license and insurance documents
